Too much engine oil can damage the engine or the catalytic converter. There is a risk of damage to property. Do not add too much engine oil. When too much engine oil is added, have the engine oil level corrected by a dealer’s service centre or another qualified service centre or repair shop.

The engine oil consumption is dependent on your driving style and driving conditions. Therefore, regularly check the engine oil level after refuelling by taking a detailed measurement. The engine oil consumption can increase in the following situations, for instance:

  • Sporty driving style.
  • Break-in of the engine.
  • Idling of the engine.
  • With the use of engine oil types that are classified as not suitable.
  • Different Check Control messages appear on the Control Display depending on the engine oil level.

Engine oil that is not changed in timely fashion can cause increased engine wear and thus en‐ gine damage. There is a risk of damage to property. Do not exceed the service data indicated in the vehicle.

It is generally believed that a Bavarian car has no moral right to be slow, clumsy and boring. Nevertheless, I have dared to carry out a risky experiment – not so much on the car, but on myself. The matter is that I was made for long run mainly along highways, moreover with decent overloading of interior and a boot.
