quick question about interval reset and CBS

I was going through my maintenance dates and noticed that some of the dates are past due, despite me having been in for scheduled maintenance since said dates.

I assume that it's possible that BMW didn't reset the dates at time of service, so I was wondering IF I were to reset myself would it automatically give me a new date? Or would it only do so if internally it recognized that the maintenance was actually performed?

Figured I'd ask on here prior to making any appointment. I actually noticed because I went in to reset my tire pressure since I was getting that message.

Thanks.

You don't actually have to perform the maintenance to reset most service indicators. The only ones where you do are on things that are continuously monitored like fluid levels and lights. All condition based service (CBS) indicators will reset and assume you performed the maintenance at the time they were reset. Do not reset the tire pressure light unless you have filled the tires to the correct cold pressure. If you reset it when any tire is at the wrong pressure the system will recognize that pressure as normal and it will be inaccurate.

is there a rough schedule somewhere for service times then? otherwise I have to simply wait for the car to tell me since some of my intervals weren't reset

Brake pads, oil, and cabin micro filter are CBS prompted services and your car will estimate when you should do these based on driving conditions. Air filter is every 45000, ATF and spark plugs every 100000, o2 sensors every 120000, every 150000 for n51 engines, and brake fluid every 2 years. BMW states that all other fluids are lifetime fluids but many here (myself included) don't believe in "lifetime" fluids
