"Service Required" alert

OK, I've had the M3 for a week now... First problem was the SES light coming on right after I drove her off the lot... got that fixed...

Now I have about 600 miles on her, and I'm getting a "Service Required" alert on startup. It tells me to schedule service for engine oil within 600 miles. Isn't this kind of soon to have the oil changed?

it's normal...the service required usually appears 500 or so miles before the target mileage, so since you have a 1200mile service, it is there.

same happened to my car...no biggie.

Read the sticker on your windshield. It gives you information on the oil change and break in procedure.
