The manual says some models have this feature, does the V? Also does it burn a lot of oil?(had an m3 that used a lot of oil)Do you check the oil often? I drive a V Wagon.

Good question. I haven't had mine long enough (just crossed 1K miles after 3 months). My M5 used to eat through a quart a month though. Anyone know if adding oil is a common practice in the V?

Mine came with an extra quart in the pan free of charge from the dealer. After 5k miles I still haven't been able to burn it off...

No idea about the indicator tho

Yes, it does have a low oil indicator... it says "LOW OIL" on the DIC.

I havent seen this, and hope i did earlier.. because of the head here in the middle east, the oil evaporates like water.. and at one point had 10% oil of what was left, and it didnt give me any warning, i was lucky that fine day, and heard the rockers click away
