If it was over filled would there be a warning that the oil was too high? I know there is a low oil warning. Thanks again
Good to see the level dropped after a drive.

Both the 645 and 650 will display "Oil level at the minimum" message on iDrive if the oil level drops to minimum or below. I think only the 650i has the "Engine oil level too high" warning, based on what I see in the owner's manual for the two models.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
