Check Engine light

I know there is probably 930847293847234 threads with this title, so there is no way i can search for something specifically...

My check engine light just came on, the car has 21k miles and its been ~2k miles since i had my last oil change/service...

Is the MB dealer the only place that could diagnose this ? (i.e. can the BMW dealer diagnose this? i hate the closer MB dealership and I can't make it out to the other ones in a while)

Have you contacted a BMW dealer to see if they can, will do it? An auto parts store can do an OBDII reading, but I don't know if it would be as detailed as an MB reading.

Look here to maybe find a shop close to you;

"Think as I think," said a man,"Or you are abominably wicked; You are a toad."
And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!
