What is this Service Light? and 50k mile service

I'm guessing it's something like brake flush?

And also what does 50k mile service involves? I'm like a month late on this maintenance schedule, need to get it done soon...

That symbol is for a brake fluid change.

There is no 50,000 service. See "Service Requirements" in your manual to learn how to access the info for any upcoming service thru your dash computer or iDrive. Also see your Service/Warranty manual for an explanation of all recommended services for your car.

You are correct, that is the brake fluid flush. It is scheduled every 2 years. I cant help much on a 50,000 service as I am just now in the high thirties. As I dont know what your current milage is and what servicers you have had it would be hard to know what would be done at 50,000.If the following items have not been done at about 45,000 they would check brake pads and rotors, spark plug change and all filters as well as scopeing the engine.
