Oil Capacity

Can someone confirm how much oil is "typicaly" required during an oil change in a SLK 320? The Manual states 8.5 US Quarts, but I've seen several posts that have made references to the manual being inacurate. I believe I've also seen posts referencing upwards of 9.5 qts. Any help is appreciated.

8.5 is correct. if you dont drain all the oil passages and filter overnite you can retain as much as 1 quart in the engine. 9.5 is overfull

I changed oil in my 32 last month with the new filter. 8 quarts filled it up really good. Didn't see a reason to add more.

Gentlemen,

I appreciate the feedback... Silverpassion: I thought it was interesting that, while looking at the manual I noticed that the space between the two marks on the dipstick represents approximately 2.1 Quarts. That's more oil than some cars use for the whole engine! ...I LOVE Mercedes engineering!
