Garage List
2008 BMW M3  [0.00]
2006 Audi S4  [0.00]

So I followed the recommendation provided by some here on M3Post: be patient...

After 100 or so miles of driving the oil level indicator is now back to normal and shows OK .

God, do I wish for a real dipstick

I got my oil changed at 13,000kms and the oil reading indicated 1 line under half. Today I went back (4800kms later) for another change and the oil reads 1 line over half.
The tech gave me half a liter of oil and told me it was extra? After looking at my invoice I see they charged me for 9 liters of oil. My question is should I add oil in .25L increments or leave it be?
