I recently bought a new q50 2.0T which has passed 1500km only and while driving yesterday I notice a "Low Engine Oil" pops up and the master warning light is turned on! I immediately stopped on the side of the road and turned off the engine and turn it back on. Now the warning has gone and I drove for another 100km and the warning did not come back. Should I be worried?! I checked the oil levels and everything seems to be normal.

If the oil level is good when you check it with the dip stick and the "low oil level" light comes on, it indicates that the oil does not drain into the pan from the upper part of the engine quick enough. This may be caused by one of two things. Oil is too thick (wrong oil) and flows too slow, or there is blockage in the oil drain ports in the head caused by sludge or foreign material. Or it could be something simple, like a bad oil level sensor.
