I'm mad at myself too for not checking soon enough. I always make it a point to double check work after I've changed tire/wheels, oil, i just simply forgot this time.

How much damage do you think there was to the engine over 600 miles?
is it leaking any? if not give it 1 day of driving it should settle properly. if not bring it back let them syphon out. my dealer always leaves about a half liter low and gives it to me to put in the next day.
