Quick question about oil

Hi all,

On the dashboard the oil level is a couple of bars below max. checking dip stick all is fine. So plan to leave as is.

Oil is jet black and never ever seems to need need topping up ( my old 147 used a litre of oil a month!)

All seem normal?

In my experience the start-up electronic oil level read low
from time-to-time. Parked on incline, after a battery disconnect etc.

(It never read too high, only low, so that's good too.)

Verifying with the dipstick is the way to go.

Mines never needed topping up either in 8k miles, so dont think they are heavy on oil.

Be wary of dealers just resetting the oil change indicator as its a pig of a job to change the oil and filter. That oil could of done a lot of miles!
