I reset my 1200 mile service reminder without any tools. I will have to find the document I downloaded somewhere, but I just used the maintenance reset instructions for a different BMW (regular 3 series I think).

I just googled it up and did a simple reset via the accessory ignition setting and the control stalk. The reminder went away and reset to waht will be the 15K interval. Maybe someone else can chime in.....
