Oil max to half in 2 days

Guys,

Since I had my break in oil change my oil mark was at max and now I'm at 9200k mls.

I went the other day to have an additional oil change on my expense (still have the 15k BMW service). After I left the service the oil mark was at max and now after 2 drives its at half level mark.

Is this normal ?

yes, the level indicator can fluctuate that much in 1 day after a change. Monitor for 2 more days, but I'm guessing it'll stay at half mark. You shouldn't need to add more oil, half mark is perfectly fine.

+1, Looks good.

Same here though, 1200 mile service I was at max oil, later that day, 50% mark. Figured our non-dipstick oil sensor was just inaccurate
