I will be doing my oil change later. Last minute question, is this exactly 6.5 litres or a bit less due to oil left in the engine? The filling quantity as per the BMW technical guide is 6.5 litres.

Out of curiosity, did you do a cold or warm/hot oil change?

Question-

If I open the oil filter compartment without draining the oil first, will that compartment be filled with oil or relatively dry?

Asking cause I want to inspect the filter without changing the oil.

TIA

Probably a little wet with oil if the car was just sitting for a while but nothing much. Safe to do
