New car[to me]

Not new to the forum, had a 540i, 6spd. Sold it, just got an '06 M5. Have a quwstion. About two weeks after I bought it, the check engine light came on with elevated emmisions words as well. I changed the oil yesterday, all that went away, is that right? Changing the oil and the check engine light is gone? When I got this car, really wanted a 6spd, just not out there, in my area. Like most, got the 7spd SMG. This thing is going to take time and practice to master. Having the fluid in it changed monday. I knew my 540 well, looking for tips on this beast. Any info is appreciated.

OE is Original Equipment: aka 'BMW Original Parts"; aka "What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label on it"

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER 'the company that made the OE part" or.... 'A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label,"

OEM is NOT WHAT YOU BUY AT THE DEALER.
