Exclamation E90 Oil Change, Then Reports LoW Oil on meter.

Changed the oil on my car on saturday. Poured 6 qrts in. Initially I poured a 5qrt. It the oil level read half way. Then I poured the other qrt in. Switched car off for about 2 hours then the level was down to about 1/4 way on the oil level meter.

Now I know (I could be wrong) an N52 holds 6qrts max. why am I getting this reading on Oil level or has anyone seen this before?

The procedure is to drain and refill with 7 quarts. Put the 7th quart in and your problems will go away.
