    Just changed the oil in our 08 X3 (in between service). I noted that when I checked the oil level, small 'clock' shows up while calculating. I cannot remember seeing that before. Best I can find on the forums is that means the stored value for the old oil level was cleared and a new one is being calculated. I couldn't find anything in the owner's manual on this.

    Is that correct or does anybody have the real story?

    thanks in advance.

    I think what you are saying is absolutely correct.
    I think you need to go for a drive, warm it up, let the fluids circulate, cycle through and reset the system. After that, I think you'll be set and it will go to the normal look you are used to. Which I think is a bar that works it's way to the right and then says OK?

    Thanks BIMMIR - Once it got warmed up and I hit the indicator button and it came back 'OK'. I just didn't remember seeing that symbol before but it's possible I alway let it warm up before checking it.

    cheers... :)
