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).
F30's need to be connected to an ISID (BMW diagnostics) to reset the CBS.

Is it a widely available design or a newer / proprietary one?
It is right on top of the engine on the driver side. The dealer sells them, not too expensive.
