Oil level indicator showing >MAX

I got my 1200 miles or 2000 km service last week. The dealer put 9L of oil. After the oil change I controlled the oil level both from the indicator in the dash and i-drive it was showing ok.

Then two days later it has changed and now constantly showing >MAX. There is no noticable leakage etc. anywhere. Should i worry about this ?

I've explained in detail how the system works and how to check the level accurately in several threads. Look for all my posts in the subject; they should help you. Take care.

FYI the above poster does not know what he's talking about on this particular subject. Beware.
