My 120d m sport which has 2600 miles on the clock currently says 10000 miles to next service. When I purchased the car it said 18000/19000 miles to next service. I understand that it is condition based but I have been driving it easy. The next service due seems to have dropped very quickly to 10000 miles considering I have only done 2600 miles. Can you please share your experiences.

Mine has also been counting down fast, despite easy driving the first 2500 km. I like that, since I think 30000 km is far too long for the first service.

How do I find this out? I'm going off the message that comes up when the car is started?

I can only assume for the F20, but with the E87 you went into the computer -> service -> you could scroll from service to service, it showed/told you, whats next, whats up when..

If your next service is rear brakes, you might wanna give your dealer a visit, as there is a (more or less) known problem with the sensors there. People are reporting rear-brake-service due in ridiculously low miles, which always turned out to be a faulty number, because the pads were still fine.

Hi, Metric system here: my 118D asked for service at 25k KM, service interval should be 30k KM.
In 3 weeks he is going for big service at 50k KM, should also be 60k KM.

Thats what you get with all the 'sheer driving pleasure' :-)
