Mine came with one too and I really want to remove it, but at the same time considering how littered Bay Area freeways are with stuff that can be kicked up by tires I have to compromise. Better the clear bra getting hit than having rock chips.
Xpel wrap the car

How is that possible, the lighter socket under the armrest doesn't charge/power up, unless the engine is running ?

If you are just driving on the street, then none. Wait until it reaches the bottom arrow and there will be an iDrive notification to add 1 liter of oil.

If you are trying to do a track day or something, then you can add maybe .3 or .4 liters then re-check, then add more in .1 liter increments.

In either situation, it would be much better to be .2 liters low than even .1 over.

Ate a late fathers day dinner with the family, snapped a nice sunset picture and took the long way home. Perfect end to a great day.

Semantics, semantics

You are correct though, and I used to worry about it, but what I started doing is continuing to drive about 100 miles past the warning and fill up with the whole liter bottle and it works out perfect.

Wasnít trying to sound like a dick, but some people get nutty with the oil level and panic when the 1qt warning goes off. If he dumps a whole liter in he might over fill thatís the only reason I pointed it out

Took her on a 80 mile drive along the back roads and pushed her pretty hard. Long flat road no cars and no 5-0. 65-12 in just a few of the best sounding seconds of my life. I just recently got the car and I am absolutely in love with her.

Do tell. Where did you power it from? And your mount? I have MirrorTaps, BlendMount and a Uniden R3 ready to go on Saturday. Always eager to learn from experiences of others.

Welcome Whitefox! Don't believe we've enjoyed your introduction followed by a nice couple of pictures yet, did we...?

Replaced my shredded stock plastic and felt parts with deansbimmer's aluminum undertray. Brilliant solution!
