check Engine oil level
I'm still quite new to driving a SLk and I wonder what is the best practice on checking the engine oil level.
Do I wait for the warning message to come up on the display ( I read in the manual there are two messages , one to inform the driver that oil level is low and one when it's critically low) or is it best to check the oil using the dipstick if so, how frequently would I need to do that.
If someone could also recommend a decent Engine Oil .My previous motor had Shell Synthetic w10/40 if I'm not mistaking, can I use the same oil ?
