Oil warning message

I've been getting the oil level low warning lights coming on the Nav screen quite a bit lately. This only happens when I'm on the driveway which is quite steep, when parked on a flat sruface nothing (the idrive menu shows oil to max).

I'm assuming that I'm getting this is because the oil is pooling at the front of the sump (as I reverse up my steep drive), but want to see if this is a common issue with these cars rather than be complacent that nothing is wrong when somthing might be.

Cheers

I hope it is. Just wondering if any one else has had it confirmed.

No just on my drive. The only worry I had at the back of my mind was "is the oil pump not doing its job properly"

Was kinda thinking other peeps must have parked on steep hills every now and again and gotten this message??

Is an "oil low" message. Not a pressure problem.
