I'm taking my 03 330 in for its 30,000m inspection in the next week or two, but in the meantime I decided to add a quart of oil, as it was getting really low. (Oil indicator had come on a few days ago, so I added 5w30).

I noticed that immediately after doing this, the car was idling slightly rough (not bad, but bad enough that I could feel the car "being on", and normally I can't), and the service engine soon light came on.

I haven't pulled the codes yet, any clue what this could be???

why would you let the oil level dip so low the indicator light had to "remind" you to top it off...I make it a habit to check my oil level every time I get gas...as everyone should. Maybe your engine has been starved of oil (due to the lack thereof) and has begun to tear itself apart from the inside out...literally:eek:
