Default Re: Full 9qt oil change in the M3 still Says Add 1 More Quart

Sometimes the computer is slow. After the rod bearing changes I've done it can take quite a while for the computer to decide that it has enough oil in it. Very disconcerting the first time it happened to me after changing the rod bearings on my car. The OP, having the oil draining for an extended time, coupled with the removal of oil from the oil filter housing, may have experienced the same thing. 8 liters might be less than is needed in this situation.
