328d owners: Can you measure def fluid level?
I've got a new 328d diesel. Great car. My question deals with the ability to measure the level of diesel emission fluid (def) - - much the same way as you can measure the oil level whenever you want.
I was under the impression that the def lasts as long as the factory oil change interval (about 10k miles on the 2014's) and that the fluid need only be replaced or refilled by the dealer at the regular oil service intervals. But I read in the Owner's Manual that the def may need to be replaced once between regular service appointments - - and if you drive in a "sporty" style, the owner may need to replenish the def more often than that. No big problem.
The Owner's Manual indicates it is possible to measure the def level using the iDrive Control Display as follows: select "Vehicle info", "Vehicle status", "Diesel exhaust fluid". Well, I tried that on my 328d and there is no entry or selection for Diesel exhaust fluid under Vehicle status.
Any other 328d owners out there have the same problem, or is there another way to measure the def level? By the way, I have a recent production 328d (October 2013).
