    how does BMW calculate mileage between oil changes?

    Hi Guys,
    as above, this does not look right on my car. I have changed my oil in spring when I look at idrive now, my car suggest I already done 5000 miles. Well for all I know, I has not been using the car that much this year and I done something like 1500 miles. how the car calculates oil changes?
    cheers

    nice one mate thanks for that.
    this begs the question: cos my oil service indicator is "flying" quite fast, what, or should that tell me something about my car? -Im not aware of any issues, car is error codes free and drives very nicely.
