you just wont be able to reset the oil change interval programed into the car.
for example if your car says at 20 000kms you need an oil change and you change it at 15 000kms, when you hit 20 000kms the computer will still put out a warning light saying you need an oil change.

you need to get someone to code the light away or i think the secret menu can reset oil change intervals (not eben sure if f30s have them, im still waiting for mine to come in).
