Q: INSPECTION light comes on at start up on 2002 BMW 330i

In the lower part of the speedometer, there several indicators, for example the Trip (miles indicator). In the same area, there is a light indicator "INSPECTION" that comes up when the car gets started. It stays for a few seconds and it goes away.
The car has about 57,000 miles.

Does it need an oil change?

Please let me know.

You can look up what BMW recommends as part of those two inspections in RepairPal's estimator:
