I feel if I level it and check it warm it will/may leak out, so I am tempted to drive it first and see how it shifts.
The fun of working overtired on your car late at night... We do it for the love of the BMW/Car Hobby!
The only thing is that you don't want it overfilled either. Too bad BMW didn't just add a dipstick, I would pay $200 for that option. Ugh.
By the way, it is ok if it leaks out, that is how you know it has the proper level.
