Here is a link:
http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e90...-dipstick.html

It shows up on the OBC I guess so you dont have to remove the strut brace in order to get to the dipstick.

That's pretty awesome. I'd love to find a way to retrofit that!

It looks like there is a sensor on the oil pan, but I dont know what else is involved. The part number is 12 61 7 508 003.

That's the only sensor I could find as well, but that's the exact same sensor we already have.

... which makes me think this will be a programming thing, not a hardware thing.

I tried coding it in and I got the feature to show up in my OBC. Right now it's displaying "-.-L" presumably because I didn't actually turn my engine on? Right now my car's blocked in the driveway otherwise I'd go take it for a spin and see if anything changes.

How exactly does the CSL display actually work?

It works just like that. You drive it for about 50-150 miles and it shows whether or not you need to add oil. From what I have read that indication is you havent driven it enough to determine whether or not oil is needed. Thanks for sharing.

50-150?! Well I went out for a quick 5 mile drive and the display didn't change. I let the oil warm up completely (I think it got to about 190 degrees). My actual dipstick indicates that the oil is full. Sport button doesn't seem to do anything either fwiw. I'll let you guys know if anything changes.

Either I need to drive more, there's more software dependencies than I realize, or there's a hardware difference.
