Good advice thanks guys!
Do any of you guys know the oil amount of the deeper oil pan (no oil cooler)?

I have tried to research that, but found no actual answers. Mine takes 4,5l oil before it reaches the oil stick. More than my cars!
Good advice thanks guys!

Bottom of the inspection glass, is somewhere around 3 to 3.5L. And you should fit an oil-cooler or drive faster.  ;)
(Just kidding, it makes a huge difference in Summer and both the coolers are and the adapter are easy enough to get overhere.)

Sounds like i should get a sidecover with a sightglass to save some oil then

I'll know after the next oil-change definitely had filled up too much this time.

Wow. Now i had a satori here.. i had lower rear shocks last time i changed oil, so the engine was tilting slightly upwards - and the oil stick is in  front end of the sump. So my oil would have gathered in the back of the sump, meaning i  overfilled quite a lot. No harm done though, would only lube the gearbox a bit extra.
