At about 1040 my m5 is asking for it's first oil service that was said to be at 1,200mi. Ironically I scheduled my service at BMW for tuesday and on monday I have a drive to NY to get it tinted.. then they next day it would be serviced.

Is it okay to drive although its asking for service already? The iDrive is saying -40mi overdue.. :1zhelp:

Should not be the issue within few hundred miles, but I would confirm with SA, just in case.

A couple hundred miles doesn't matter, I've done it more than once. My 07 6 speed asked for the first service @ 650 miles, never happened until 950 +/-. Not rocket science............just a lube job. :dunno:

I know the service was engine oil change and diff/tranny change that's why I was unsure.

Thanks for the rocket science lesson though. :thumbsup:

It's fine. I had the same thing as I was in Nevada. No problem at all. Just don't go over by hundreds of miles.

What percent tint did you get?

By the way -S63, S600 and B7- you've got to explain this curious range of copycats? Family cars?

I'm bringing my car in on Monday to NYC to get 35% all around but the windshield - "Huper Optic Ceramic Tint"

I posted the answer to your question in the other angeleyes thread.
