What i didn't realize until buying a BMW is that they consume oil like crazy. mine was asking for a quart in between oil changes. I took mine in for brake pad work (sensor was yelling at me to replace them) but the place that i bought the car from, or whomever did the previous maintenance work, didn't reset the sensor. The pad looked brand new. The shop said that it's a strong possibility that whomever did the work before didn't have the right software to reset the sensor. Also, they said that BMW doesn't resurface brakes. They just change them out (i thought that was weird).
For the brake pads, easy to replace the pads, rotors, and sensor, then you can reset yourself. Google for the procedure using the trip reset button on the gauge cluster. The car will quickly run it's own check and tell you if it can reset or not.
