Oil help please

Recently my 2006 BMW M5 read 0.4L so i went ahead and put 1 quart of oil in and rest the oil level. Drove around for 10-15 mins and now it reads 1.5L (which is waaaaaay to high). My question is would 1 quart make it go up that high from 0.4L?

Did you get that sorted out? I always reset the oil level through the idrive after I add any oil, seems to give a more accurate reading if you reset it and let it re-calculate.

I did reset it and waited twice. I ended up having some oil drained from a shop and reset it. Reads 0.8 now. ?
