Changed rear pads today having had a read of the forum...I reckon you guys have saved me about 400 (I guess $550?) and the whole process easy as pie. The clearing the service advice can be a bit fiddly but apart from that simplicity itself...Thanks
For info took an hour and a half...I was taking my time and it is cold out though.

Dude this is great. I've been thinking this whole time that I'd have to have a shop plug the car up to clear anything but the TPMS. I've been drivin around with these light on for 3 months after I changed/replaced pads/oil myself.

Holy crap this was frustrating. All E90s do not work the same way. Mine is a 2007 E90 335i with navigation. Here's what worked for me:

1. with engine running
2. press and hold odometer reset button
3. service light will appear (yellow triangle)
4. while still pressing odometer button, press and release the BC button TWICE on the turn signal stalk (pressing only once does not work). Service indicators will appear.
5. use the thumb scroll on the BC stalk to cycle through the service indicators (brake fluid, oil, brake pads rear, brake pads front, service interval, state inspection, etc).
6. navigate to desired service indicator
7. press and release the BC button, it will ask to "Reset?"
8. to reset, press and hold BC button - a rotating hand of a clock will appear
9. when the clock goes away, release the BC button
10. turn off/on engine to confirm that indicator light has been reset.

I just re-did my front pads with new sensor and tried resetting it multiple times. I've got a 2008 335i coupe. The reset only comes up while it's running. Otherwise it brings up some foreign words with numbers. When I reset mine, it just shows the mileage as "----". So I'm guessing I need to try unplugging the new sensor check the terminals and try again.

Finally got mine to reset, did it with the car running. I'm so happy to finally drive without the light on its been months from when it first came on in like December I didn't get around to replacing the rear pads, rotors and sensor until mid February and just got the light to reset today.

I got mine to reset when I did the rear pads rotors and sensors. Just doing the fronts alone didn't give me a full reset with new mileage. I had to do front and back. I'm glad I don't have to deal with the warning every time I start the engine anymore!
