Any one ever tried this method? I have an E39 but stumbled on this the other day on another site, I could not find this method on here and thought I would post it up.

- While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 secs.
Note that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption level and cannot reset.
