06 BMW 330i How many quarts of oil in the engine?

Assuming we're talking about an E46, owner's manual says 6.5 quarts. BMW dealer will tell you 7. Reason is that the filter will be holding approximately .5 quart. Best thing t…o do is to remove filter from housing under hood, drain oil pan on level ground (remove bolt from under access panel under engine compartment), bolt it back on with the replacement washer given with the new filter, install the new filter with the new O-ring that also comes with it (lube with a little clean oil), and then fill with 6.5 quarts. Run the car, and instead of checking your oil and adding more right away, go ahead and drive it a day (check it once to make sure nothing is screwy, or leaking). After that day, if you're at all low (perfect level is in the 2nd gap on dipstick), add the rest. If you're already correct then leave it alone. You don't want too much oil b/c it'll actually make the engine work harder and could have consequences added to just not running quite as efficiently as possible. Also, always use Castrol fully synthetic 5-30. If you absolutely have to use another 5-30 synthetic, fine, but the Castrol is actually a slightly higher grade - i.e. approved for more applications, and if you're the typical BMW owner who cares enough to ask exactly how much oil in the first place, then you'll want to get it right, because if you don't then it'll bother you. I changed mine with Mobil the first time I did it and then found the literature about why to go Castrol instead, and I wasn't happy until I drained $40 worth of good oil and replaced it with a different $40 bucks worth just to get it perfect. Oh, and if you ARE overfull, you won't have any problems up to a half a quart over, although you're better off without it. The easiest way to get some out is to open the oil reservoir and sticka paper towel or shop rag in there and soak a little up. You can get a siphoning pump or a turkey baster syringe, but why go through that much trouble. Good luck.
Answer . 7 quarts
the inline six takes 7 quarts. the v8 are probally different.
The BMW 525 engine holds five quarts of motor oil. The manufacturerrecommends 10W-30 weight motor oil in all of its models.
Full synthetic 5/30
Remove the plastic cover underneath the engine u will find the oil filter.
I'm thinking Mobil 1 Synthetic 0w-30w 0r 5w - 30w. Gary Mantell
You can use Mobil 1 5w-30
The oil change light on a 2006 BMW 330i is reset by turning thekey, pressing the trip button, and then the DC button on the turnindicator. The left scroll button is then used …to select the oillight and the DC button held until it clears.
It should fit, the engine size are the same. I think its still based off the M52 Inline-6, just the displacement is different (2.5L to 3.0L)

1. First turn the ignition off 2. Press and hold the trip odometer button WHILE turning the key to position 1 3. Keep the button depressed about 5 seconds… until you see "oilservice" or "inspection" with "reset" or "re" in the display then let go 4. Press the button again and hold for approximately 5 secondsuntil "reset" or "re" flashes 5. While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again toreset the service interval. After the display has shown the newinterval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 seconds *Note that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption even and cannot reset This procedure has been tested on the E46 3 Series Hope I helped :)
