Was only picked up by a pre-purchase check by a indy workshop.
That's a bit worrying although, they reset service indicators via the OBD II port and probably aren't even looking at the cluster during services. A Pre-purchase Inspection however would've picked that up straight away.

Yeah, the Indy mechanics I've been to have more of a passion for the cars than some of the bigger BMW dealerships I've been to.

There's also a wealth of knowledge on the internet. It's not difficult to research them, I guess some people don't bother or don't think to.
