Oil capacity / Sensor issue??

I just did my first own oil change on my 2006 330i. (I always did my own oil changes on previews cars)

I've added 6 L and oil level was showing approximately 1/2. So i kept on adding bit by bit and restarting the car so it recalculates. By the time I realized i've added 8.5L and it's still showing 1 bar less than max? I even took the car around the block and it's still showing 1 bar less than max.

Is it possible that there is something wrong with the sensor?? Did I overfill???

So i started thinking back and calculating how much I've drained. Seems that I've drained approximately 6.5L and before I drained the oil level was showing about 2 bars away from max.

Not sure what to do now? should i drain some of the oil?

(i really miss having a dip stick)
