Gotta love quality dealer service

Remind your tech to drain the front sump...

Ugh!

Do techs not see enough M3s to be familiar with them to properly change the oil?

taking mine in tomorrow to get some oil drained...

didn't think to bother looking until I read some threads on here. Sure enough, reads "oil level too high" every time I reset it.

yup, per the dealer car was 1/2 qt over (sounds like the front sump didn't get drained).

oh well... I'll probably do a mid cycle change myself next time...

It was fixed before my rant. Still pissed me off to go back and get it drained. It was about 1 liter over...

I do my own oilchanges on mine. See to many misstakes like these + you dont want to run with too much oil in your car if it would leak thru selaed engine-gaskets. I'd take it back ASAP.
