Unhappy Red Oil Pressure Light

Hello!,

About 2 days ago I changed my oil in my E90 318D, after draining it all, filling it up and letting her run she was fine, but half way through the oil circulation I got a red oil light, CC ID 212, Funnily it only appears when idling, she doesn't idle rough, doesn't have any visible oil leaks, and all things were bought according to my vin.

I've checked the dip stick and topped her up a few times (small amounts) but this light doesn't seem to wanna go away..

Might I add, when she's still a little cold, example in the morning or after being parked for a bit the light doesn't appear for some time till after a few stops and it keeps happening every time I stop.

Any Help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not too familiar with the 318d being don't have it here in the states, but does the oil filter have a small o ring that comes with the new one? Most of our engine do

You don't say how many miles the engine has done or what grade oil you have filled it with.
Perhaps if it is a high miler it needs a slightly heavier oil at tick over to maintain pressure.
The other alternative, of course, is that you have been unlucky and the pressure sensor that triggers the warning light has decided to fail at the same time as you changed the oil.
