Hi aajabbar , this can be tricky if you haven't reset the cbs indicator before
first turn the ignition on so that you have all the ignition lights on and the engine not running, once the service indicator has cleared fom the display, press and hold the tripometer in until the display shows a triangle then the microfilter symbol, release the button then press and hold again untill reset shows, then release and press and hold again untill you have a sequence of lines on display, once this has happened release the button and turn off the ignition, once the ignition is switched on again the sevice indicator should have reset. you may wish to print these instructions and familiarise yourself with them before carrying out a reset. regards Mark.

Reset service massage on oil change on 2008 X5 4.8I

you need to tell the car the oil was changed. it doesn't know by itself. Use the car information system and navigate to the the service menu and you can reset it. if you can use an iPhone, i'm sure you can figure this out.

I have replaced the micro filter for my 2006 BMW 325I. I need a step by step instruction to reset the computer. Thanks.

You'll get new engine air filter and mircofilter (a/c) whenever your computer tells you that they're bad. Otherwise, if you want to do it for you own driving enjoyment, just do it when the a/c smells bad, or do the engine filter when ever you look at the existing one and feel disgusted.

Them, when you make this job in the dealer os BMW shop, they could reset and reprogrammed this time at next change/replacement.

Is the only way. Good luck.
