Drive the car for at least 45 minutes... then see what the oil level says.

IF you do a lot of very short drives... the oil level sensor will not read correctly bc of the high water content in the oil. Go for a long drive and recheck.

Or... just change your oil and then you will KNOW the oil level is correct. You could have a bad oil sensor too. Do you have a code reader like BMW Carly ? You could check for codes that way.
