I haven't reset it the last time I changed in Mar, but wondering if there was a definitive answer to this? Obviously if I trust the oil for a year in stop-and-go traffic then I'm fine, but otherwise....

the maximum time can be changed with a DME flash. The default maximum is 730 days, you can change it to however many days you want.

I don't know if that works once you hit the 300,000km threshold though..

So you're saying after I reset it this time, it won't push the date out farther if its more than 730 days. I had no idea, thanks. I'm no where near 300,000 km, so not quite worried about that yet. If it for some reason does go past that or it gets too annoying, I'll solicit your services, sir.

Anyone else past 186,000?
I have an E92 with about 228,000 Miles. At around 225,000 miles (not sure on exact mileage but over 215,000) my change oil service light came on. I changed the oil, reset the service light and it came back on after driving it a few miles.

As a side note it took sometime to reset the service light as I had a light out indication (which was difficult to identify) and I cannot get into the car service reset menu if there is another fault showing up on my dashboard.
