Oil lever check

I think I am missing one of the manuals for my 09 Boxster.....
How do I check the oil level?

Turn your key one click to light up the dash. The oil gauge will start checking level and give you a reading. Don't confuse full with all bars lighting up. The top bar means 'over filled'. Do this check after the engine oil is warm and has been shut off for about 30 minutes.

On my 2010 Boxster S, the procedure is in the Owners manual under the "Instruments, On-Board Computer, Warnings" section. Odd place to locate it....
Engine running at idle, engine warmed up, car sitting level, wait for it to time out on its test. Top bar lit = oil OK, DON't add. Only bottom bar lit = add oil NOW. In between, add some soon.
Good luck.
