Oil Level Indicator

I am getting or taking delivery of a E92 M3 this Saturday.
I have noticed once I turn the car on in the dash is says:
Low oil and shows a bar that shows nothing.
Then after driving it shows full or the bar is at full level.
Should I be concerned? I have two quarts
That I will take with me when I pick it up..
I called 2 bmw dealerships. One said..
That it might be a quart low....the other said
This was normal..
I have picture to attach ... I am now to this sever.
Any help would be appreciated.
Also it's not the one that says +1 ect

Welcome to the world of ///M. The oil indicator will take a while to give you a accurate reading. The iDrive will let you know if you are a quart low......enjoy the car................Phil

Yeah, perfectly normal to show nothing while the engine is warming up. Once it has warmed up, it should show the correct level. If it needs more oil, it will actually show "+1 qt" (or something like that).

You're fine. The car hasn't finished measuring the oil level.

It's not just the M3s, my 530 XI has done that in the past.
