Reset Service light?

Finally got around to my first oil change in my 335i, everything thing went great thanks to the DIY guide, but i have a service light that flashes up still.

How can i clear this BESIDE going to the dealer...

This is from the sticky somewhere. I copied it to Word and saved it as a file so I would loose it. Works perfect.

Guys I looked everywhere (maybee not hard enough ) for a DIY service reset for E90 but couldn`t find one. So decided to try the E60 DIY which wasn`t too far off. I realise most cars are still under warranty but I will use this to replace my own brake pads and microfilter instead of being fleeced by the $tealers.

Step 1
Insert key into slot
Step 2
Press start/stop button without depressing clutch/brake and wait for the service reminder to dissapear.
Step 3
Immediately after service reminder goes out, press and hold the odometer reset. After 3 secs a warning triangle will appear, keep the odo. button pressed and after another 2-3 secs the Oil can will appear. I f you hold it too long (10 secs in total) you will overshoot the runway and some German writing will appear giving the software level/ can bus etc. of the car. Go back to the beginning and start again.
Step 4
You are now in the service menu, use the toggle switch on indicator stalk to scroll up/down through the various service items.
Step 5
When you have the item you want to reset showing, press the BC button on end of indicator stalk. Reset should now appear in the display. Press in and hold the BC button for 2-3 secs and a clock will start whirling around and hey presto, its done
Step 6
You can now either scroll up/down to select another item (as in step 4) or you can press the start/stop button to exit.

Sorry if this a re-post guys but like I said I couldn`t find it anywhere.
I accept no responsibility if you break your car, this is done at your own risk.

Some people have their cars longer than 4 years and others drive more than a few thousand each year. The reason I own a BMW is because I like to drive it and I also like to do what I can on it for myself. And don't worry, I way out of my free services so I like to know these things. I drive about 22k a year

Just reset my service indicator for my 2008 328i, and as with the other owner, I like driving, I'm at 75000, and doing my own oil and brake changes. so it's nice to be able to reset the service indicators manually.The procedure noted above worked perfect. However the BRAKE light stays on because I need to replace the brake sensor, which was damaged.

Here is a video on how to reset it yourself. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ighlight=reset

If no codes are being thrown use Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner (concentrate). It solves rpm fluctuating upon cold start-up. Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes. If you want to register a newly installed battery for free (just buy a $10 cable) and google/download BMWLogger
