1st Service

Hey guys quick question. You know when you start your E90, the next service display comes out to tell you when you're due. Well when I had under 4K it was reading 15000, then somewhere around 5K it started showing 12000 and right now I'm just over 8K and it's reading 11000. Anyone else experienced the same thing? And is this in any way related to a driving habbit? Thanx for the help.

Mine reads the same


My 2006 325xi reads 11000 with 8450 miles on the speedometer. This means that the car computer feels that I can go almost 20,000 miles on the original oil. I know that better than 6000 miles are highway miles, but this is !!!

Thanks god I have already changed the oil and filter at 3100 and 7900 miles. I will change the oil again at 11500 to 12000 miles.

Hope the dealer will change the oil on the one year anniversity also.

my dealer changed the oil at 15,000 miles (3 mos b4 my one year ani.) as the regular service (read: free), despite the service meter showing 9,000 miles till service.

i am bringing it in next week so he can fix the service reminder to not flake out like that again.
