In Reply to: 2/3 of a quart doesn't seem to low to me (m) posted by Norm on May 15, 2001 at 19:27:42:
a quart or two with me. I heard the fhe same ticking the first time my oil was this low, when you hear it, you're down about 2/3 quarts, so that is pretty low.
give that the M3 holds 6.3 qt. Not that I advise letting it go that low. I would top off regularly, but that's me. However, even BMW would support not having to add any oil until it hits the low mark, which is about 1 qt low.
