Chriskm3 - What do you mean by have I checked if I am still in limit? I had two green notches on the oil reading, wrongly assumed this was half full and topped up. First by 1/2 litre and then took a reading, no change, then another 1/2 litre, no change and then added 1 litre, (again very stupid I know!) started car for 10 seconds, got the alarm max level, oil too high. I then switched the car off, phoned BMW assist for advise and then researched the internet. I am reluctant to get my car recovered and pay BMW 200+ (estimate by assist) to take 1 - 2 litres back out my car......thats if draining the oil is a simple task. I am interested to know if it is worth completly emptying the front sump and then measuring whats taken out or go straight from the main sump? Thanks for any advice given!!
