Why would you want to do that on a 05 320i ?? Unless you have a lease car with no paid for servicing its madness.

If you did you would invalidate the warranty. Unless you don't care about the warranty I would advise that you pay for the service.

Reseting a service indicator will NOT invalidate a warranty, only failing to have it serviced in accordance to the service schedule will.

If you've serviced it yourself - you've already invalidated the warranty. But if you've taken it to a VAT registered garage (who have to use BMW parts) then they should reset it for you. Its their job to do that.

Why on earth do you want to tamper with a car that is still in warranty?

If heavyend doesn't want to service the car when the car is telling him to do so he/she will end up invalidating the warranty anyway.

Ah that would explain why. I thought you were planning on servicing the 05 plate E90 now. Hence the reference to madness.....

I'm sure once all the aftermarket stuff kicks out there will either be a sequence of buttons to push or something to plug into the OBDC socket to reset the service indicator.
