Used 6.6L for oil change instead of 6.5L - oil level showing max, am I ok?

For my oil change on my 335i I used 6.6L instead of the normal prescribed 6.5L. The level is showing MAX and not Overfill. Am I still ok with the extra .1L added even though it is not showing Overfill? Or should I drain it out. I know I am being overly cautious but just want to be sure.

You are fine.

Manufactures leave a buffer zone for these specific reasons. I put 7l in mine and it is fine.
