X3 oil level sensor

Bought an 2013 X3 w/4k from a local BMW dealer. At aprox 6k the add a qt of oil message came on and I did so with no dipstick to refer to. Great move BMW! At 7k it alerted again and once again I reluctantly did. One week later again it alerted and we took it to the dealer who took out 9 qts from a 6 qt system. "Faulty sensor" Can I have engine issues from running too full for god knows how long? I only added 2 qts in 3k miles but it my have been 1 qt over when I bought it.
