You will get a red warning on your iDrive if you oil gets too low. It has scary language about permanent damage to your vehicle. I think this warning kicks in right after you go 1 qt low. I got this warning, and immediately pulled off the road added a a full qt, and the warning went away and level indicator was at the top (i.e. not mid).
