Buy the oil and add it yourself.
My car with 19,000km and last oil change 7,000km ago, just asked me for a quart last night. The orange oil symbol appeared on the DIC and there was a warning that oil level is at minimum. I stopped, added the oil, and drove away. 15 minutes later, the level was measured 1/8 from full. Problem solved.
The thing I like about BMW is that they foresee stupid little things. I bought a carrying case (for a quart) from BMW and it came with two paper funnels and a alcohol wetnap inside. Thank you BMW.
