I believe the dealer was just hestitant to overfill the thing. You're gong to have to fill it to the max if that is your desire....

If these e92/90s M3 is like a regular e90, there are no dipstick and the only way to check the fill level is to check is after awhile when the engine is warmup/running

I bet they are the same way. Check your owners manual under capacities
