Comment on your experience with the issue if you had one...cheers
This happened the day I picked up my car. I was sitting in the parking lot going over all the electronics with a product specialist and we came across the oil too high. He had me drive it back to service and had me go into the coffee lounge ( they paid for the latte) about an hour later service manager came out and said they couldn't find anything wrong. He said they had seen this on the 7 series when it first received the dipstickless "improvement" so from experience they drained all the oil and refilled, problem (and warning) went away and has never returned.

I like the electronics but still wish I had a dipstick as a backup.
