Oil change

02-17-2012, 06:49 AM
Having been changing engine oil regularly for nearly 60 years, can't break the habit. Besides, I know what's going in there! Miss the dip stick! Also, as this would be the first oil change on by 535xiGT, I would prefer to do it at 7,500 miles rather than normal 15,000. I believe someone told me that the oil & filter change took 8 qts. Could someone confirm that oil quality or advise me differently on the oil sump capacity. Thanks!
