E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Engine oil capacity

It really frosts my a$$ that BMW has decided not to disclose the engine oil capacity in the owner's manual. It advises that oil changes should only be done at the dealer. WTF?

Anyway, what is the oil capacity with a new filter?
IIRC, my E46 was ~7 qts.
