Exclamation point

This morning I got an exclamation point with a curvy line on each side and some dotted lines on the bottom. Also has that same logo in orange above it. What does this mean? New to the BMW. Any help?

Pretty sure this is the tire pressure sensor.

Check the manual to make sure... then go put some air in your tires!

Sorry, man, some of the post on this site just blow me away. Not having the manual is certainly different than not looking in the manual.

Download manual here


Here an except from page 81:

Indication of a flat tire

The warning lamps come on in yellow and red. A message appears on the control Display. In addition, an acoustic signal sounds. There is a flat tire or substantial loss of tire pressure.

1. Cautiously reduce speed to below 50 mph or 80 km/h. Avoid sudden braking and steering maneuvers. Do not exceed a speed of 50 mph or 80 km/h.

2. At the next opportunity, check the air pressure in all four tires.

Why do used cars always come without owners manuals?
