1200 Mile service, has to be when computer says?

Hi all,

Quick question. Can I just take my car in right at 1200 miles and get the service, or does the car's computer need to say it's time before BMW will service it? I did a search and didn't find an answer to this question, but hopefully it's a quick and easy answer, thanks!

Driving my car back from the PC in Spartanburg I could stop for that service in Oklahoma City (Jackie Cooper BMW) at 1,050 miles or push on to PHX (~1,950 miles). The folks at PC and my local dealership strongly advised me to stop in OK City. So depending on the circumstances, that service can also be done a little before 1,200 miles (and the car's computer didn't call for it)
