I tend to believe my iDrive because my car has never burned oil and there is no oil on the floor in my garage or on the garage floor at work.

Has anybody ever had this happen to them?
By any chance did you then go back and check using the stalk immediately after using the iDrive? They both get their signal from the same source...
