one year service

Bought my 2013 sDrive X1 at Beverly Hills BMW the Friday after Thanksgiving, 2012. As I approached 14K I finally got the oil change service due light for its first scheduled service (I had brought it in a couple months back for a low coolant alert).

Originally I set an appointment with a promised loaner for 11/22 but when the "service due in..." marker hit "0", I emailed my SA and he said, "Why not bring it in this Saturday? We'll fix you up fast, while you wait." So he was true to his word. I was out in under an hour. Somehow I expected the first service at one year to be a more comprehensive affair! Then again, it's true that the IDrive alert was just for the oil change. By the way, I noticed later that the next service is still shown in 15,000 miles, so that's not changed despite the 2014's going to every 10K. But I'll ask about that when I eventually take it in for the brake recall.

So other X1 owners on one year - was your first service a longer affair?
