What determines vintage? 92 '?

Thanks for your help on that. ;-)

Probably changed during the run since the E32 started way back in the late 80's

righto; ok -- so back to my question -- of what makes a car vintage? (ie: battery vs. non vol. ram) is 92 vintage? Or more specifically 92 735i e32 vintage?
Or another way to ask -- how can I tell w/o ripping the dash apart? -j

Why do you care? Did the SI lights reset when you disconnected the (main) battery? IOW, did you have one or more of the greens already extinguished and now they are all lit?

All 3 were already lit up; services were just done; including oil change; but I barely drive the car... as I understand it; the computer takes into account driving style & time in determining "change the oil" -- if the battery goes dead in, say one month, will it reset it such that it thinks the oil was just changed?'
Thanks -josh

No, it should not. Otherwise people would not bother buying $100 reset tools. They would just disconnect their battery and then re-enter the radio code.

Maybe this is a clue to two things
If I disconnect the battery and reconnect it a few moments later, should the trip odometer be zero'd out or should it remember?
If it should remember, that would lead to the assumption of it has batteries & they're dead, wouldn't it?

I was keeping clear of saying this since later cars *should* use more modern techniques.
