Oil change reset button?

Does anyone know how to reset the mileage button that tells you when you need to change your oil or where it is located on a 05' 325ci? I would like to start changing the oil myself since the dealer charges a arm & a leg to do it, and so I could change it more often then the recommended 15,000 miles. Please give detailed instructions since I can be a tad slow at times.

- Press and hold trip meter button down and turn ignitiion key to accesory position.
- Hold until you see 'reset'.

- Release and press again.

Is there a similar procedure for the 1999 M3 or must I get a code reader/reset unit?

for 1999 M3 you ground pin 7 on the DL connector for 10+ seconds and it resets your lights for the oil change mileage
