You're still OK. The scale represents a single quart. It will tell you when you need to add a quart.

But if it makes you feel better add a few ounces then wait to check the level indicator again...

I drove a Kia Rio rental back in the early 2000's, what a piece of junk that car was.

But I have read that Kia and it's parent company Hyundai have greatly improved their quality. Some of them...

I have noticed that my wrist is a bit limp when I shift the Miata and I find myself looking for show tunes on the radio.

Oh, for chrissakes, the OP said he was going to change the oil in a few thousand miles and was down a quart. I would bet a kidney that adding nearly any modern multi-weight oil certified by the SAE...

My 2006 325i has an even more useless "instantaneous mpg" gauge in that location that basically just tells you how hard you are pressing the accelerator pedal.

Yeah, heard that one. We Miata owners also hear that the Miata is a "gay" car. I find that one the most amusing.

I don't care what other people think of my cars. I drive them because of what they...

Venting the crankcase gases directly to the atmosphere would also solve the issue, and it is what was done before PCV valves were mandated in the 70's. I wonder how problematic the release of the...

They do look nice. I wonder if the off set is different for an E60 than for an E90? If it isn't too different it may still work.

306 rwhp is better than most of the "muscle cars" of the 60's and 70's. I'm sure it doesn't feel underpowered.

My 2006 325i is probably putting about half of that to the rear wheels and it is...
