How to level set maintenance on new to me car

I just got my 135i, a 2011 with about 53k miles on it.

When I look through the service menu I see the following:
Brake fluid - 06/2014
Service - 06/2014
Oil - 15,000 miles / 06/2015
Service (car on lift) - 30,000 miles / 06/2017
Front brakes - 49,000 miles
Rear brakes - 60,000 miles

To me these all seem messed up since the car already has 53,000 miles on it (oil change at 15,000? Service at 30,000? Front brakes at 49,000?). Does this just mean that these indicators were somehow just cleared but not reset to go to the next service interval?

Trying to figure out if I should just have the oil, filters, brake fluid, and front brakes replaced and then somehow set everything so it indicates the proper next interval.

Any tips on how to handle this? Thanks!

This means that you have 15,000 miles LEFT until your next oil change. Same thing with the other maintenance. This service indicators will go down, example for oil change, as you drive your car, it will eventually go down to 14,000, 13,000, and so on until you hit 0 but then you wouldn't want it to hit 0 before you change your oil. Goodluck!

Ahhh... okay I was wondering that. I suspect that the dealer where I bought it just reset all the indicators. Or maybe the service was done... Maybe I can check with a BMW dealer? If the service was done at a BMW dealer would it be recorded in a system or something that any BMW dealer can access?

I asked an SA at one dealership where I live, and he said the systems are independent of other dealerships. I confirmed this when I drove to another dealership and asked the same question. But I think if you go to the dealership where it was maintained, they can pull up the vin and see what was done to it.

Any dealership can pull up your vin and check maintenance history by your key fob.
