Oil level sensor questions

About to change my oil level sensor to stop the oil light from turning on and off and was wondering if their was anything else I should replace while I'm at it.

How easy was it? My light comes on for like 10 sec every time I start up. Even with fresh oil etc. Any tricks I need to know? Thanks!

Very easy to replace (more complex on M3). Three screws hold it in oil pan so do it during oil change obviously.

IMPORTANT: Use only OEM. I put a URO unit in there and it lasted less than SIX MONTHS. I'm actually embarrassed for the Uro company to market such inferiority. Their screw holes didn't line up either and I had to redrill two of them.

Good call and advice. Sounds pretty simple. Sounds like it's time for me to buy a repair manual and knock out some of this stuff. On my list; oil level sensor, 2 o2 sensors, and then if i can talk myself into it new struts and shocks(front &back) the fronts sound like a bit of a bitch to do.
