Cool Oil Pressure readings 1995 S500 Coupe

My S500 has 39,000 miles but the oil pressure at idle when hot and in gear with the foot on the brake is reading at 1 bar. Is this normal for these cars? It moves up to 3 bars when i drive away at 1,000 rpm.

You might want to try and ask this question in the W140 section for better response rate. For what its worth , although the one is a little on the low side, it does fall into the acceptable range as per merecedes who give a range of .3 to 3. Pegging at 3 when driving is normal. What oil viscosity are you using in your car? It should have a upper viscosity range of 50.
Do a search in the w140 section for other possible explanations.
