    My car is due for service as indicated by the dash icon. Is there a checklist or something like there was for my 330xi? I'd like to see what the service actually entails.

    Your vehicle used what is called CBS (condition based services) basically meaning the car tells you what it needs, this is stored on the key and read out by a key reader at your local dealer. You can also go through you scroll menu in the vehicle and see what is in yellow meaning do soon or red which means over due.

    It's icon number two. The manual gives no further information. If it's just routine service, I would expect there to be a checklist that is followed.

    Are you saying more detailed information is stored on the key? If so, that's a really bizarre place to store additional service information.

    If there is no further text along side, that might be the reminder for state-required safety/emissions inspection. It's annoying in most states (other than NY and a few other NE states) where you don't have annual/bi-annual inspections

    That icon is used for several serious problems that require service, but they all come with additional text AFAIK. I wouldn't totally ignore it.

    Like mentioned above it that symbol is for the vehicle check service. Basically a look all over the vehicle to make sure it is road worthy. I would ignore for now and next service just have it reset.
