mysterious error dash images 07 328i

Hey bimmer faithfuls.

Once again, I have another questions for you. When I start my car a red service light comes on. I attached a picture of the error code that comes up in red. I saw from a video that the symbol means a radiator coolant but I wasn't sure. What should I do to fix the problems?

Also, any hints on what the second picture means?

Thanks for the help.

I believe it means that it is time to change your micro filter and the other pic is that your is due for general service.

I don't mean to be rude but this is mentioned in your Owners Manual. Hopefully your car has one. If not, I would highly recommend one because as you already know, not all the symbols are intuitive. The first symbol means your cabin micro filter is past due for replacement (it was due January). The second symbol means your car is almost to for a vehicle inspection (800mi to go or January of 2013 whichever comes first).

You can also goto BMW's website and download pdf copies of your owner's manual if you don't have one with your car.

It's available in the owner's section of the site.

Don't listen to any of these guys.

The first image means the fan that cools the catalytic converters has failed and the exhaust may overheat. The second image means BMWs should only be serviced on a lift.

By lift you mean lead radiation shielding ingots

Man, that reminds me, I have to change the exhaust pipe coolant

Don't forget the blinker fluid.
