    just a quick question.. how come when i start my e46 compact it doesnt show anything on the oil service reminder screen? it was serviced 6000 miles ago so surely it should show??

    it comes up saying inspection due in 7000 odd miles so why nothing on the oil??

    cheers

    That's because your next one will be an Inspection service which includes the oil service.

    On the E46 models, service intervals are usually 15k miles. Sounds like it was reset from what you say. Next time you have it serviced, it will say oil. 15k after that, it read inspection...and so on. Have a read...Service interval information
