Can you tell me approximately what mileage or time frame BMW has programmed in the computer for their "oil service" and "inspection service" lights on the dash when they illuminate?

Hi there,

I think 7,500 miles for the oil service, 15,000 miles for the inspection or 1 year if you do not drive the critter.

Is this based on driving habits (e.g., heavier acceleration might translate to fewer miles btwn changes)?

Reason I ask, mine seems to be on about 10K right now, and is on the last green segment.

Thanks for your time!

Yes, it is based on driver's 'style'

Anyone can tell at what mileage mark the oil should be changed or the transmission fluids flushed and when should I have a vehicle inspection ?
