Hi there very good question! I am not sure how much oil the f56 takes but if it takes 4 litres I would put in 4000/100 x 20 =800ml for a 20% low reading but to be safe I would always add it a bit at a time as over fill is a mare too!
Re the oil change I intend every 6000miles regardless but if you only keep the car a couple of years the new owner will be the beneficiary of your expense-makes a buyer know you care though if you sell privately!

Re the oil anyone know wha t the factory fill is Castrol Edge but what grade?

I agree-total pain-bring back the dipstick-mind you the r56 dipstick wasn't a good design and there are lots of posts about the best way to check the oil on them! Hopefully it wont be a problem we need to worry about too much-if it has nt used any yet it sounds promising-and contrary to popular belief my r56 mcs and my wifes roadster 2 haven't used a drop between services!

Quite right kenl honest John in the telegraph reckons every 2nd fill up I think I read for oil level check I do all fluids and tyres every other week regardless. But over filling is terrible for the car. Only top up if needed.
