I overfilled mine once by 1/4 quart. I put a large plastic measuring cup under the drain plug, cracked it loose until it dripped and let 1/4 quart drain out, tighten plug, good to go.

On my old motor, it used to burn so much oil that I thought I'd add just alittle bit more...  Really stupid of me.  I blew up the Air Oil Separator, oil entered the cylinder - beginning of the death of my motor - I think.  Had to drop the motor to replace a $100 component.  It was probably one of the strong contributors to my motor giving up it's life.

Air oil separator will not work correctly ..... Level needs to be in the middle reading of the gauge not the upper most reading to operate optimally

Mike T. Is this true? I thought it should be all the way full. Is this in the owners manual or just tribal knowledge?

This is experience speaking.  We never filled customers cars beyond two bars below the full mark, specifically to prevent issues with the AOS.

True that.  To support this statement, I hereby claim that over filling your oil will cost you 15k for motor overhaul. (overhaul took place about 20k after the AOS replacement)  It was the dumbest thing I've done in my life besides getting married and having children that went to college to basically spend a GT3.

 

As for German owners manual, they never are joking. You basically own a motor that is designed to be reving above 3k rpm all day long.
