You can clear the notification but you can't update the idrive completely as that is a dealer --> BMW thing.

It can be done anywhere that use genuine BMW parts. Tell him not to take it to Williams BMW as they charge the earth.

Thereís a BMW specialist called MB on Great Howard Street, itís literally just down the road from the main dealership. Theyíre brilliant and will update the iDrive to say itís been serviced.

Thereís also a place in St Helens called Graham Martin Automotive. They too are a BMW specialist and will do your service at the fraction of the price that the main dealer will, also updating your iDrive.

Iíve used both of them for various services and would recommend them both without a doubt. If you call them then theyíll tell you the prices over the phone and get you booked in. I found that GMA was cheaper for the oil change whereas MB gave a better price for the brake fluid change.

Hope this helps.

The idrive service history can be updated with non-BMW services

You need a cable (same type as used with ISTA and eSys) and the HU Manager software

There are some caveats but the software does work. Search my posts for HU Service Manager for full details at http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1456664

I've entered the interim oil changes I do myself.

Let me know if you want any specific help
