BMW lists the 'initial fill' at 7.8 liters. But when you do an oil change, not all the fluid drains out, so only about 5 liters/quarts can be added. I've performed this on two cars and had one checked by BMW to verify that the fluid level is correct.

Yes to your second question.

The oil change process is not detectable/traceable.
