it just works on the engine starts then stops, it look like a gear (circle with toothes) I just interested to know if this light checks oil level and viscosity or just transmission functionality,
mainly BMW gear oil not like the regular cars gear oils as far as I know.
Ok thats the transmission light, I don't think it checks transmission oil levels or viscosity of the oil. That light comes up when you have transmission problem, e.g. skipping gears, shifting out of sync, you know serious problems with the tranny.

gear oil does need changing...i changed mine this past weekend and it was black...when it went in it was clear.

Thanks all, I was really confused about that so I just called the authorized service center they said for my model it is life time oil and you should never change, as if you change it with normal market oils you will need to change it regulary, BMW original oil is expensive at least for me for changing oil, it is arround 200$
