My question is how bad is the oil at this point, does this light comes on after certain kilometers or after certain time (weeks, months)? What really makes it light up?
My father's X5 had an oil change about 3500miles ago and now the oil light is on. It was reseted when the change was done. Isn't to short time? It is using Mobil 1 0w 40 supposedly LL01 which is what the car needs according to the manual. It's a 3.0diesel X5.
