The milage shown is a count down to your next service. IE when it gets to 0, you need to service the car.

It is adaptive, the car has oil quality sensors etc and also calculates wear on the engine related to your fuel consumption. It is an estimate, and doesn't correlate exactly to the milage travelled.

When I had 6000km's on my 320d, it said 14000km till my next service. I thought no way my DIESEL is going to get 20 000km's on it's first bit of oil! Well, as I drove - the service interval indicator became more accurate. It's now on 1100km's till my next service, and my milage is around 13800...meaning my car will get it's service close to 15 000km's as "planned"

:-)

Don't stress about it...
