Question about 2001 BMW 330
It began to count down at 5000ks and is now at -850.phone the dealer and was told it would cost a minimum os 500$,
If you have a 2001 BMW 3 Series, it does not take a visit to the dealer to reset the Inspection I or Inspection II indicator. You can locate instructions for how to reset it after it triggers here.
If your OBC needs to be reset after completing your oil change, there are two ways.
NOTE: If you miss a step, just turn the key back off and try again:
A. Model Year 1999 to Mid-2000: You should have the older round 20-pin DLC connector under your hood behind the battery terminal, you need to use a small length of wire to connect (short) pins 7 and 19 for 3-5 seconds with the ignition key in position 1 (Accessory). B. After Mid-2000: You should not have the 20-pin DLC connector. You only need to hold the left odometer reset button while turning the key to position 1 (Accessory). Keep holding the button for 5 or so seconds until any of the following shows in the display: OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE. Release the button and press it again for another 5 or so seconds until RESET or RE flash. While the display flashes, press the button one more time briefly. If done correctly, END SIA should show up for a few seconds.
That said, its very important to perform the services suggested by BMW for Oil Service, Inspection I and Inspection II. I have a 330 and I would not recommend reseting this indicator without performing the services recommended at the prescribed intervals first. It will greatly improve the longetivity of your car and reduce the likelihood of mechanical failure.

That's how they get you. you need a scanner to reset it. try looking for a small shop possibly one that deals with european cars. they might charge you less to do it. they should reset it for you if you let bmw change the oil for you.
