Oil Life Monitor

Hello! I have a 2014 328xi N26 w/ 68k miles. I changed my oil about a month ago and reset the oil life monitor afterwards. I used BMW Twin Power oil and Mann filter from FCP euro as I have done for the last two oil changes since my 50k service program dried up.

My question is in regards to the oil life monitor and how quickly it updates. I keep noticing during startup that the next service is in 9000 miles.
(oil is the next service due in the menu list this followed by a service check in 27k)

I have put about 1300 miles on the car since the oil change and the monitor has not reflected a change from the 9000 initial count down. Is this normal? I do a lot of highway miles but my OCI has averaged about 8500 miles according the CBS monitor. I am wondering if the computer is messed up or has a glitch? I thought it showed a countdown quicker.

I appreciate any input.
