Clock indicator light at service interval display?

Lately, when I start the engine, a square light with a clock icon at the service interval display lites up and goes off with service interval indicators. I don't remember seeing it before and couldn't find what it is from the manual.. Anyone has any idea what it is? Thanks!

Hi, I have the same in my car, it means its time to replace brake fluid. The BMW dealer recommends I do a coolant flush/replacement aswell, with the brake fluid replacent. They quoted me +/- $125 for the job.

I remember Gustav asking what that meant. I think Stamper is the first to answer (not in owner's manual!).

On most other BMW the clock symbol means Annual Inspection...
