No doubt quite alarming when driving at that speed. It could be that at
such a high engine speed the oil apparent to the sensor level is a bit
low, perhaps due to the amount of oil being pumped up to the cam etc. .
Oil needs a moment to drain back down to the sump.
Be sure the oil is not overfilled - above the top mark - for overfilling
raises the level to the point when the spinning crankshaft hits the oil
and that causes it to foam and be aerated with small bubbles.
ok, just checked the olilevel, and it is aobut 1,5 cm over topmark.
I think there is 0,75 L to much oil in the energine, can that really cause
the trouble ?
I will take 1 L oil out later today.
I have the same model at almost the same mileage and drive it often at that
speed too :)
However, usually after draining the oil for oil-change I refill the engine
with 7.0 L oil instead of the 7.5 L suggested by the manual. This brings the
oil level between the MIN and MAX marks, which IMHO is better than to fill
it to the MAX. I use a synthetic 0W40.
