I agree with the above post. My '93 will get as low as 0.5 bar at idle, in gear, in warm weather with AC on, and others with V8s I've talked to have the same experience. I was told by Stu Ritter that officially the oil pressure is always measured with transmission in neutral, never in gear, so if you check your pressure in neutral you'll be pleasantly surprised to see how much higher it is.

I think one of the reasons MB took out the oil pressure guage on new vehicles is to keep us obsessive owners from worrying too much!
