First Service

Car is currently at 1195 miles and saying it has another 200 to go before service and I've booked it in for service next Tuesday (fully booked monday ) so 50 miles on monday and 65 to the dealer tuesday means it'll have a min 1300

Service agent said that as long as the service is carried out before 2000miles there's not a problem, I've a 100 mile trip this weekend and pondering if I should take the wife's crappy clio but don't see why I can't just go with the OBC service indicator

What's the highest anyone has had first service done?

You should be fine - just stuck driving the 100 miles with limitations in place.

I wouldn't worry. Someone just posted a 1200 mile oil analysis and it was like brand new oil. Just stick to the break in limitations and you should be just fine. Have fun and represent!

I'm pretty sure your car isn't going to turn into a pumpkin at 1201miles. :P

Wouldn't worry about it.

Just as a point of reference....my iDrive displayed I was due for a service at 1K miles, and started showing negative miles(meaning i was overdue) to Service Due date after I hit 1,000 mile mark. I didn't bring my car in until this past Wednesday at 1280 miles.

And another tid bit, my car was returned with under 1 mile put on from the time of drop off....basically from my SA moving the vehicle around the lot.

My car was showing 600 miles to go when I only had 800 miles on it. The dealer called me and I went in for service. Now the car shows next service at 15000 miles
