Condition based service system on bmw 335d how does it work?

Quick question does anyone know if the condition based system actually look at the oil condition or is it just monitoring how it’s driven, i.e. miles driven fuel used and no of starts etc.

Any information on how / what it looks at greatly appreciated.

As I would like to change the oil and filter on mine, at one year and 12k miles, but it has a service pack 3yrs 36k on it, so don’t want to really want it to extend the service interval on the car.

Hoping to get an indie to the change oil and filter, but not reset the service indicator, then the car I’ll have fresh oil but the car and BMW won’t know it so it will get a second oil and filter next year courtesy of the service plan, assuming that will work.

I have just bought the car as a retirement present and intend to keep it for many years, well until diesel is no longer, so at least ten years.

Thanks in advance

CBS does not care, just change the oil and filter as many times as you want, just make sure the garage does not reset anything
