Not sure why it's come on now but it would have in another 20 days or so anyhow. Time to bend over if your going to the dealers I'd say.

Errr? It's reminding you that you need a service soon (3 weeks / 21 days by the sounds of it), by 07/12. Isn't that obvious, or am I missing something?

No good waiting until the day before it tells you, that would be a bit inconvenient.

It's giving you time to get it booked in. Most people aren't as observant as you and wouldn't take any notice of the 07/12 10000mls bit.

Not many drivers (like my missus) would even know what the little "07/12 10000" meant.

They need great flashing lights and a man with a foghorn to leap out at them shouting '"book a service!! FFS"

I think the OP thought it would say 0 miles when it got to service time but as someone else said above, it';s the lesser of the two values
