Yes you do have to reset it. The i-Drive controller allows you to do it pretty easily. There is an easy way to do it and that's what the shop does. I change mine every 7500 miles give or take 1k and do it the same way. Saves a few $$ and gives me piece of mind. Search the forums...pretty easy to do.
