Oil Pressure Problem-resolved!

I posted back a month or so ago with an issue regarding pressure, i was never hitting the 3 mark on my pressure guage (always 2.8ish max)

I took it in for service and my mechanic assured me it wasn't a major issue (yet). He said it was normal for high mile european cars to get "loose" so he suggested a heavier weight oil.
Switched from 10 W 40 to 15 W 40 and
low and behold I'm back in business. It wasn't my pump, a leak or connectors. thanks to all for your help.
