Some newer models of BMWs don't have dipsticks and just rely on the electronic oil level indicator. I hate not having a dipstick. It probably would be a good idea to have the sensor replaced. It may save you an engine in the event of a serious oil leak.

Yes, replace the oil level sensor, you have to drain the oil to do so. $50 for a new one. I use fcpeuro.com for my parts.
