Oil light problems, any suggestions?

Hey guys,

We have 2004 BMW 325i, and it has been a great car except for one thing. The oil light keeps coming on after you turn off the ignition. Now its not every time you turn off the car that it happens, its just every now and then. This started after about two months of having the car, so we took the car down to Budd's and they changed the oil, gave it a new oil filter, and changed a sensor to. This worked for a while but then it came back and since then we have gone in a few more times, but each time they can’t figure out the problem. Now one thing I no for sure is it is not the oil, and my best guess is that there maybe a bug in the computer. I was just wondering then dose anybody have any suggestions, or has anyone else had a similar problem?
