Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
To drain the oil - all you have to do is remove the small (about 4" x 5") plastic rectangular cover which is situated towards the rear of the "plastic tray". It is secured by one hex head screw (about 8mm I think). This reveals the sump plug (hex head 17mm) on the side of the sump. Make sure you have a good big drip tray underneath as, due to the sump plug facing sideways, when the oil first runs out it shoots way over towards the side of the car. I found this to my cost the first time as I had positioned a container underneath the sump drain hole and the oil shot horizontally over the top of it and poured all over my driveway. Re the second half of your question, sorry - I dont know anything about the oil level sensor.
