I think my car is getting sick

I really give up it seems the car has something against me.

First the xenons need replacing, and brakes need doing. Now today oil problems.

On way home car came up with chekc oil on the OBC screen. Was on motorway so as soon as I got off I checked the oil it was between min/max.

Added a little bit abotu 200ml to be sure and its fine. However never had it come on even in my e46 unless it got close to min. No point was car on a steep angle etc. very odd.

But then only to be annoyed I noticed the intercooler pipe from the turbo is again weeping OIL and the whole undertray is covered in oil. Not major but its only been 10,000 miles and 12 months since the performance kit was fitted and new intercooler. It would think it would have held better than that.

Arghh
At least it could have been worse at least survived the cull at work today
There vented.

usually when the check oil light comes on you need to add 1 liter. I just did a 500 mile round trip to france today for work today and the light came on. Put a litre in and all is well!

weird thing was just turning the car off and then restarted it and it was fine. Very odd well added the extra 250/200 ml see how it goes. Oil change not due for a while, more annoyed about the seals on the new intercooler leaking again

...rear shocks at 24k, front shocks at 35k. rear tyres worn in 10k miles. front drop links needed changing at 35k when shocks were done. now apparently my temperature sensor 'thing' is throwing a code! I know how you feel.

oh...and I 'think' the oil check light only comes on when you need a litre so if you put 200 in it will read ok!
