You run the oil check level in iDrive after you've poured in the correct amount. If you are at minimum level...then add another quart/liter then run the oil check program in iDrive again. Continue until you reach MAX (or you're satisfied with the level if its above MINIMUM.

thanks for that, suppose its reasonably simple. I have ten litres of oil for it.

its just come up on the idrive that its on minimum, add two litres of oil. That was a surprise, I was expecting it to be only 1 litre between min and max.

It is 1 quart between max and min. Because the original N63 engine has oil consumption issues BMW recommended that the dealers add and additional quart of oil to prolong the time in which owners would revisit the dealer for a top off while under warranty. They were intentionally trying to conceal the problem which lead to the class action lawsuit. Before my 2012 was totaled its was consuming a quart of oil every 600 miles. On the 2017 I picked up after 3000 miles the oil level has not changed. Now I need to see if the dealer will use the case of oil I kept in the trunk of my 2012 at my next oil change on the 2017.
