I wish I could remember what pages this information was on, but if you have the digital copy of the manual (can get from BMW web site) you might be able to do a search for it.
I think the most important thing here is to ENJOY YOUR NEW M!
I'll be taking it easy making my way down to Virginia but probably constantly watching the instrument cluster for any messages stating I'm over due. I have downloaded the manual and will search for the info. Thanks for the info and oh yeah I can't wait to enjoy the car fully after the servicing. Hopefully I won't get pulled over after driving in Europe for the past 6 years!
