    Automatic 1yr Service Engine Light

    My car was built on 4/10, is there an automatic SEL after 1 year? The car still has less than 3K on the odometer.

    might be the tune, but if you have rarely driven it, then the car gets an annual service once a year.

    Its not the service engine soon light is it?

    I've had a reminder, but it was after certain miles, not a date thing.

    Mine came on based on date -- for both Oil and Brake flush. The service info on my 335i stores both date and mileage.

    It also depends on how you drive.
    I had 26000km before service, then when I came back from trackday I managed to drive 16000 km off of this.
    Now it says 10000 before next service.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I thought all new BMWs were condition based servicing, so depending on how its driven and for how many miles alters when the service is due and which service etc.
