What i don't want is the service light being reset automatically, then when the dealer plugs in my key fob they see its not due, when it should be at 46k miles. Don't want to lose my service history!

Should be ok though?
Not sure about this though.

What I have noticed is that if I top up oil, it automatically extends the remaining miles for the oil service.

I hope somebody else can answer this.

EDIT: I take it that your car is under warranty and it is low mileage car. Leave it on normal oil service schedule.
