BWM no fluid stick, The company is silly here is how you can check It (should display a code if low..., if you have a lift / hoist that's the easiest way... IF, not get on the ground in front of the vehicle look up and locate the transmission drain plug and continue looking upwards the is a fill port / plug near the top of the transmission unscrew the plug and check the level. Beware BMW transmission fluid is a "lifetime" fluid ,if you add this may Void your warranty? without Dealer approval, you may want to call and the dealer and BMW directly on how to handle a low fluid warning.
