The SERV light is an indication that there is a fault in the electronic system somewhere,and is not a service indicator light.
As Pizzaman says,the light is sometimes accompanied by the ABS or Airbag lights.If the light is on on it's own,then it's usually an engine management fault.A code read at any independant garage with the correct equipment can tell you what's causing it.No need to go to a main dealer......
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
Currently in Lagdti's garage:
