Engine oil 8.8qt ok?

Just hopped on my 55 and play around with the "Voltage Menu", in the second sub-menu show the oil leve "8.8qt" but when I check it with the electronic meter it said "engine oil level: ok"

Just wondering that if this is normal since the SLK should have 8.5qt engine oil but I have 8.8qt still shows "OK"

Thanks for helping me!

It OK since it didn't tell you to reduce the oil so you should be fine.

Thanks Klinh! I guess the 0.3qt is still in the safe range before reaching overfill!
