Inspection I

Hi Guys,

Got my first E36 a couple of weeks ago & had an oil change, replaced pads & rotors, control arm bushings, P/S cooler assembly & outer tire rods to pass safety. When I got it, service indicator shows one green bar only, now its at inspection I.

The car drives fine & I understand service indicators can be reset. Should I bring her for Inspection I & have the oil changed again (I'm not really sure what type of oil the dealer put in), or, should I just get the service indicators reset?

Thanks in Advance.

Inspection one involves a bit more than an oil change

Check here:

You can probably do the other stuff minus the oil change, then get the lights reset.
