you can buy a cheap scanner that will put this light out,i have a mechanic working for me that stands on the roof ,tweeks the radio and has one foot on the brake whilst turning on the lights and he puts out nearly every service light you can think of but he wont show anyone least of all me,but if it its a 99 model iam sure you can put the light out by using a 12v electrical screwdriver with the light inside and a cable comes out the end with a clip .then going across the pins on the special BMW connector block it will go out with the resistance of the bulb across it ,but ??big but ?does it have an OBDII connector or the round BMW type because we dont have OBDII on pre 2005 cars here in spain .Now we do and guess what ??its all encrypted software used ...makes me a dinasaur

Hi , to reset the service light you will need to insert the key and turn the ignition lights on but do not start the engine. you will see a push button on the lower left side of the instrument panel press and hold this until you have a triangle appear which then turns to the brake warning symbol , release the push button then press and hold the bc button in the indicator arm until reset appears , release and again press and hold the bc button until you have a moving clock symbol appear , release the bc button and wait for the display to change , once this has reset turn off the ignition and the service symbol should have reset . you may want to print these instructions before resetting , regards Mark.
