Destination fee is the same whether you take delivery 3000 feet from the manufacturing facility or 3000 miles.

What is the Training Fee? I would strongly resist this charge.

Cosidering a 2013 535i

I'd be more worried about the low engine oil level; oil in the coolant isn't a big short term problem (it can reduce cooling efficiency over time with sludge build-up in the system though).

Oil change at least annually if not driven a great deal, brake fluid flush every 2 years, coolant flush every 5 years, transmission and rear end fluid every 50,000-75,000 miles.

Is this an OEM disc? Are you using OEM pads? Can it be removed with brake cleaner? If not, that might be your problem.

Could be something as simple as a bad sensor or more complicated as a failed oil pump or worn out main bearings. I would look at the pressure sensor first.

I guess it only matters if you are afraid of losing your luggage fro it sliding off the back or having it crash through the headrests/roll bars.
