Here's the list of oil capacities, taken off the BMW TIS website. Hope this answers any questions that might be floating around in various threads.

Wonder what one is supposed to do with the left over 0.1 quart. :confused:

Pour it into a 1L bottle?

More likely, the ever efficient Germans ran experiments and determined there is exactly a total of 0.1 of a quart of oil left in the cans after pouring out a quart from each of the seven oil cans. Thus there is an exact oil fill from using seven quart cans. :rofl:

I assume this is this with a filter change? Or is this just the capacity in the crankcase?

Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info.

and what about us with '07's and no dipstick??? how do we know if it is full or over full???
I just let the dealer do it--then he is responsible if something happens because of over or underfill--and no worry if the oil and filter is the recommended brand.............he should know..:thumbup:
