yes. it means you ran over a small yellow car, probably this one:



just kidding.

it means on board computer is warning you something is up. chances are, your breaks or engine oil will need replacement soon. to know what it is exactly, go to 'car data' or checkout your iDrive manual.

probably. but go to the onboard computer in the 'car data' section - upper right hand corner. it will tell you for sure what it is.

Yea sometimes it could very well be jus a fused bulb in the high beam lights that also serve as daytime running lights (here in canada they do!) or cud be a malfunction in someother system like DSC or ACtive Body Control/ Dynamic Driving Feature (760s or the neweer 750s)

Yellow car - something needs attention in the near future.
Red car - something needs your attention now.

It is warning you of an impending need for an oil change.
