"Check engine oil level" after 300-400 miles?

As another data point- I remember getting the "check engine oil" notification at some point during my 991.2 GT3 break-in as well. I followed the procedure and it measured as fine. I don't think I've seen it again since (at 3500 miles now), but this is a good reminder to run it again and do another check to see how much was consumed before it goes in for the first service.

I just had my dealer change the oil in my car for the first time at 3800 miles. The car displayed that warning a few weeks ago and when I checked it the level was fine. BTW the dealer used Mobil 1 0W40

991.2GT3 will issue that message as a memo (in blue) based on km or time. Porsche just wants you to check oil level from time to time.
991.1GT3 will issue that message as a warning (in yellow) any time there is an issue with oil level. .2 would naturally do the same in case of an issue (yellow warning)

It's just a courtesy reminder. It's NOT a warning that your oil level is low. Simply check the oil and if it says oil level correct, then you're good to go.
