Please don't tell me the oil cap unscrews in a clockwise direction.
LOL..I know what you mean. The first time I had the oil changed on my 330 I noticed the tech over TQ'd the cap. I politely asked him to back it out so the marks lined up.

Good luck and stay calm. If you can't back it out, call leave a message with the dealer ASAP telling them you're brining the car in to have a tech unscrew it by 1/4 turn.
