I just changed my oil and filter, and also reset the notification in the dash menu. But it tells me that I need to service it in 800 mls or 4 months.

Am I doing something wrong?
Is there a way to set the oil change interval to, let say 7500 mls?

Glad you figured it out.

Good idea on the oil change interval, with the way these engines like to eat valve seals, I'd never recommend going over 7500-8000 miles per oil change.

Done a few valve cover gasket jobs on engines with less than 100k miles on them that were sticking to the long factory oil change intervals the they were already gunking up inside where the ones that had more frequent oil changes still looked like new.
