Is this the +1 add a quart warning? Or is it some kind of light asking for an oil change or low oil pressure.

If it is just the +1 add a quart light, then the dealer could just top it up for free depending on if you are maintenance covered. It may not necessarily need an oil change though, it is normal to burn oil between changes. How many miles does it say you have remaining before your next oil change?

If you add oil yourself, use the dealer bmw brand oil. You could also use synthetic mobile one or castrol syntec (both must be LL-01 rated on the back and make sure they are the tough to find european formula).
