Notification of needed service

Curious question.......
I received a voicemail from Hendrick BMW saying that my 2009 128 notified them it was in need of a service check. It has 17,300 miles. I don't have any error notifications on the dash so are they just making an educated guess based on ave miles driven? I am assuming there is not a 2 way communication with these cars and they have not had my fob in months.

Thanks guys

Well , I have a 2012 128 also bought from Hendrick Charlotte and equipped with BMW Assist. I believe that the car does notify BMW when service is due.

Just got my call from the dealer. Car does communicate with BMWUSA who then updates the selling dealer. They want to do an oil change & brakes, car has about 16/17K miles on it.

Time to take off the BMS decals.

Oh yea....forgot all about BMW assist. I did notice this morning when I started the car there was a brief service notification flashed but then went off. I usually do not look at it unless there is a solid error code like low tire pressure.

I wonder what it needs......is there a way to tell manually without reading codes? I still have service warranty till june or july

Thanks again
