I just had the 45K service done and the tech put 4.5 quarts in, which I think is the capacity for the 1.8T in the Jetta and Golf. My B5.5 takes 3.9 qts. and I think it's okay to put 4 qts. in now that the larger oil filter is used. As one would expect the oil level reads up the dipstick so I'm wondering if I should take it back to have the excess oil removed to prevent harm to the engine? Where are you Sharky, or any other VW techs with knowledge about this matter?
