Ok, just in the last day or so my dashboard oil light has been coming on at idle. I've checked the oil levels and it's pretty much right on the money for level. I know how E30s get with the idiot lights and all so could it be the oil pressure sender? I know the overhead light comes on when it's 1 quart low and the dash light when it's 2 quarts (no I have never let it get that low). Any ideas?

Also, it doesn't do it when the motor is cold, only when it's run for a while.
