Oil low warning

I've had my 550 for less than 2 months, I've got just over 3k miles and this evening got a warning saying my oil was low and that I should add a quart. Going to dealer in the a.m. I hope they have a loaner I can have, I have an 8am meeting I can't be late for.

Anyone else have this issue. Hope it was just low from the factory.

Don't over react. Get a quart at Wal-mart and add it yourself. Make your meeting.

This is very common. Your car is normal.

Oops. It would help if I put in the correct link.

We had a similar thread from last week. My 550 asked for oil around 4K miles. Anyway here:

I've posted before, but mine is low every 3,000 miles or so.

I was down a quart at approx. 4k and 8k. Dealer topped it off (no charge) when I brought my car to service unannounced. I do hope the consumption gets better.

My 535 also gave me a low oil warning light at 4500 miles. Topped off by dealer at no charge in about 10 minutes.
