Just had the 4000 miles oil change done on my RR8. I have come to the conclusion that the oil quantities in the owner's manual are slightly too much.

Here are the levels/ quantities I have ended up with:
Oil + filter change: 2.6 litre to bring the level to the bottom of the dip stick
Add 150 ml to get to the halfway mark on the dipstick (which is where I like to keep mine) or:
Add 200 ml to get to the full mark

The capacity between min & max markers is only 100ml. Hands up all of you who have been overfilling their engine!

Also remember the dip stick is at an angle (not vertical) so you need to use the mid way point between the oil levels on the sides of the stick
