1,200 mile services and now iDrive shows overfill

Just got my car back after getting the 1,200 mile service. My iDrive screen shows that engine oil is at max. Should I be concerned? Do I need to go back to the dealership and have them drain some oil?

clumsiness. We should expect this to happen based on the volume of complaints.

I know when I top it off, I always put in 500cc at a time and it jumps up on the gauge by a huge amount.

In that case either take it right back or drain some oil.
