3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
I have a 318i 2004 (E46) BMW with 105456km on the clock.
I need to know if there is any way I can reset the service indicator info? I went over the inspection km's and now every time I switch the ignition on it shows how far I am over the inspection. I will take it for the inspection but not now, in the meantime I want to reset this, is there any way I can do it myself?
You only need to hold the left odometer reset button while turning the key to position 1 (Accessory). Keep holding the button for 5 or so seconds until any of the following shows in the display: OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE. Release the button and press it again for another 5 or so seconds until RESET or RE flash. While the display flashes, press the button one more time briefly. If done correctly, END SIA should show up for a few seconds. All done.

I stepped in a plate of Pasta the other day - now I have to worry about my Carbonara footprint!
Thank you for the quick response Marti5. I did it and it seem to sort out the inspection interval showing - just a few questions:
1. Will they pick this up on the next service?
2. Will this have any affect whatsoever on my car or anything else?
3. When I did the reset it showed rESEt - Inspection - 51A -do you know what this means?
4. Now when I switch on the ignition it shows OIL SERVICE 250000 - is this normal and what does this mean?
-I apologize if this seems like stupid questions - just thought I'd like to know.
