How do you reset your counter after you change your oil or does it automatically do it by it self?

No, you don't. You can do it yourself. The handle you use for turn signals is all you need. It has a scroll Up/Down in the middle and a BC button at the tip. Scroll up or down until you see the Oil icon on your dash -> Press the BC button to select -> press and hold for 5 seconds until you see a little clock working (this indicates that the oil odometer is resetting). DONE! That's it. For better clarifications, go on YouTube and search for How to reset BMW Oil.

Changed my oil today



Great site Got around to changing my oil today after reading the how to's posted here.

Couple of fine points:

1) The oil cap on top of the valve cover does not "twist off". You twist to loosen the flip it up. Not intuitive.
2) If you local Walmart only sells the 5 qt jugs of 0W40 ($26 X 2) and you need 7 qts...how do you measure the final 2 qts? Well I poured one 5 qt jug into the engine then poured 2 qts into the empty 5 qt jug. Could have just poured out a bit at a time from the new jug, but this way you know it is right the first time.
3) The drain plug goes in sideways (pain).
4) You cannot reset the oil life if there is any sort of other alarm present (such as the right rear bulb alert). Had to drive around a while to clear that POS alarm.
5) The oil filter was pretty snug when twisting the cap back on (normal?) and the "dots" did not line up perfectly when I got done.
6) E-92, sport suspension and new rhino ramps ($40, Walmart).... leaves no room. Had to start with a 2X4 prior to the ramp.

Question??

Oil light in my daughters 07 E92 came on low so I added two quarts. Hit the reset and it reads OK with the Oil level line in the middle.
Do I add more oil to get that line to Max?

Thanks

Let it settle first. Mine showed 'half' at first after my most recent oil change, then a day later showed max - and hasn't changed since...
