"Brake" on dashboard display on the 335i
 
Starting yesterday there has been an amber "brake" light on the dashboard display. If I apply the parking brake the warning turns read and says "release parking brake". Also when I first turn on the car I get an icon of the car on a lift which goes away after a few minutes. The car is scheduled to go to BMW Manhattan Wednesday AM so I am not too concerned but I am curious as to what that "brake" icon on the dash means.

Low brake fluid level, worn out brake pads and/ or sensors, it's good to have the brake lines checked as well....good luck and let us know what they find...

I got took the car in for service on Wednesday. The appointment was scheduled before the light came on. Picked it up this afternoon. The rear brake pads needed to be replaced and it was done for no charge under the extended maintenance.

I think it is the new driver comfort software from BMW advising you to stop, have a cup of coffee* and take a few minutes rest before continuing your journey.

[*coffee is purchased at the driver's expense. BMW is not liable for any injury sustained by contact with hot beverages]
