Maybe I punched it one to many times. Who knows? The BMW tech and many others say I have nothing to worry about, and to just take it a bit more easy until 1200. ****Check the general forum...there are some good explanations there.
The same thing happened to me at 700 miles. My BMW center called me to tell me they received a teleservices message that my car needs the oil service. In actuality, the car's info system is telling me I have 600 miles left until my first service. I spoke to the Service Dept yesterday and they told me to wait until I reach 1200 miles, as per the car's info system. The teleservice message was just a "warning" to indicate that my 1200 mile service is due soon.
