over the flares is a bit much.
I talked to a BMWNA rep about this and he sounded like overfills were not
harmful and even encuraged to give inattentive drivers who never check level
a safety margin.

Mine came back from the dealer at the top of the flares. I took it down to the normal full mark.

They offered to redo the oil change but I didn't feel like driving 35 miles one way. It slowly burned off.

Friend has repair shop and I used his vacuum pump oil extractor.

These things seem very popular with boat people, so if you know anyone with
a boat they may have one you can use.

I think trying to do it from the drain plug runs the risk of dumping too much & is messier.

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it too much. These slight overfills just
don't seem like that big of a deal and mainly give people something more to
_bitch about "stupid dealers".
If you have a history of needing make-up oil between changes then I certainly would
leave it... it will be down to normal in due time.<br><br><hr><br><A HREF = "http://stl_don.home.att.net"><img src = "http://members.roadfly.com/stl_don/M3_sig.jpg"></A>
