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.

I changed oil how do i make the maintenance grid recognize it


You must manually reset the system

BMW Oil Service reset for 2001 ~ current model year

- Ignition OFF (POS 0)

- Press and Hold the trip odometer button while turning key to position 1 (ACCESSORY)

- Keep the button depressed (about 5 secs.) until you see "Oil Service" or "Inspection" with "Reset" or "Re" in the display

- *Note: On vehicles with "High" cluster, you will also see the amount of fuel (in litres) remaining until next service

- Press the button again and hold for approx. 5 secs. until "Reset" or "Re" flashes

- While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 secs.

Note that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption level and cannot reset

Does anyone know of a great place where I can get an oil change for my brand new BMW M3 Sedan?


if i had new bmw i would let only the bmw dealership change oil and service the car period, bmw is a very expensive car every body cant work on them.let dealership do the oil change they the only ones can reset your oil service light,its not easy to reset if you dont know how. most of the time if you have new vechicle the place where you bought the car will cut you a oil change deal.

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.
