Big big thanks to you mr-fix for this. That’s a great help to all E8x owners on here and will save lots of time hunting through YouTube. Excellent work deserving of lots of praise :)

Guys getting the amber car symbol / service warning upon turning on car which disappears within a short space off time. Car has been serviced but not reset can I use the above procedure on service light on my E88 to prevent this light showing up upon switch on and I take it I just put each date forward from what it currently reads ?

Yup, the car will set the new mileage for you.

Make sure you only reset the correct item though, some Chap reset everything for bad-measure and messed up his brake wear system.
