Sophistication does not mean it shouldn't do what it is designed to do. It is a turbo 4 cylinder that has been making over 400hp and 400ft lbs of torque for over 4 years on stock internals and gets track time nearly every weekend in the summer. I see your point, but it is the same in that the engine has a crankcase with oil it in and a WORKING system for validating that oil level. Basically my point is that my cheap Dodge Neon has been working far outside of the parameters Dodge designed it for for over 4 years. The brand new BMW hasn't even worked within the parameters BMW designed it for in 2 months, unless 32 degrees is the minimum temp they are supposed to be used at.
