Service Engine light

Asked by Mar 31, 2008 at 07:10 AM about the 2001 BMW 5 Series

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We just bought our first BMW. Should we be concerned about the Service Engine light coming on frequently if we service it regularly? It seems to come on and go off every other day!
