Even measuring out 3.5QTs which is the suggested oil amount for a filter change according to the manual, it still shows over filled. I'm not too worried about 4 ounces of oil or whatever it is.

Maybe it's easier to say 3.5QTs versus, 3.4QTs plus tablespoon of oil lol

I dumped 4 liters at one time and I was wwwaaaayyy up there on the stick. Did not bother with slurping any out; ran without a hiccup... and after 3k miles, back at the top mark we were. Life is good.

If I am not mistaken, the factory fill is 0w16 idemitsu, but I may be wrong.

But 70% on the mm after 500 miles ..... is there a racetrack nearby? And how is a 2015 left unsold given the 16 & 17 & 18 model years have been out already.

At the end of the day ... I hope your new purchase serves you well. I hope you got a good deal given a couple of warranty years are gone already.

And most importantly ... check for any recalls at the dealer. You're looking at a possible front end beam crash structure product update, recall on coils, service bulletin for check engine light calling for injector replacement and possible door handle brackets rusted out.
