2015 F30 Maintenance Setting Question

I took my 3 series in to the dealer for the required vehicle check. The dealer reset service mileage requirement to 90,000 miles for my brakes. Fortunately I knew the front brakes were due to be changed in 4,000 miles. I asked the dealer about this and they said they did me a favor resetting these. Said the sensor will know when the brakes are due to be changed and adjust automatically. Is the dealer correct in this statement or are they trying to push out when the brakes are due to be changed?

What possible reason would a dealer have for delaying the brake work?

I don't read that as delaying the work. He said that no matter what the setting, the sensors will tell the car when the pads are worn out.

Michael, I realize that the sensor will notify him when brakes are needed. The original post asked if the dealer was "trying to push out when the brakes are due to be changed ", and I could not think of any reason for that.

When should front brakes be changed

The question is will the sensors tell me when the brakes are due to be changed. My rear brakes were changed at 55,000 miles. The front brakes were due now per maintenance before the settings were changed. Current mileage is 75,000. I can't believe the brakes don't require changing yet!

Are you sure the dealer didn't reset the "service due" indicator to 90k ...... it comes up every 30k

Resetting brakes remaining life would just be silly ......
