Hey guys!
Anyone ever had this problem?
My 325xi sometimes lights the oil light when you shut off the engine. The oil is full, and the light never comes on when the engine is running, not even at idle. The light stays on for a few minutes, then goes out.
The car only has 6000 miles on it. Anyone with a similar problem, I would appreciate your comments, before I take the car back to the stealer.

Thanks!

I had the same thing. It just means that even if your oil is full its starting to lower.....I just took one quart of synthetic oil from the shop and poured it in.....the lights went out presto. Try that if not then you got an inspection due or sumthing. Take it to the local mechanic or dealer.
