Welcome Moto! B)
you should always put less oil in than the capacity because not all the oil comes out when you drain it. for instance my car has a 4.3qt capacity but i only need about 3qts for a complete oil change. B)

I have a 2000 328i that I bought a few months ago.
I took it to the dealer for an optional oil change and
supplied my own oil (Castrol Syntec 5W30). The owners
manual calls for approx. 6.5L or 7 qts of oil. I took in
6 litres thinking I would be topping off at home.
When I took it home, the dipstick showed the oil level
slightly past the upper notch. Does anyone know the
exact oil capacity? I watched the mechanic put only
the 6 litres in.

It also depends on if the oil filter has been replaced as well. The filter holds about half a quart of oil.
