Never wait until the light comes on. Why? If the sensor is bad then the light will never come on!

Plus our E30 M3's needs to be filled up to the full mark all the time. During hard cornering the oil can goto the side of the oil pan and the oil pump in the center can't pickup the oil. Plus our cars have a oil pooling problem when turning left uphill. The oil doesn't drain to the pan. Check Oil level every couple of weeks if you drive alot. If you track it, check everytime you come into the pits. Ask me how I know. $6k engine rebuild in progress, even with the oil baffle mod in place.
