So ive searched the forum and cant seem to find the answer. I've seen a DIY S4 oil change and the guy said he needed 8 quarts and in the manual i saw it was 6.6. Another member said it needed 7. Obviously ill play it safe and start off with the 6.6 and go from there if anything. Does anybody know a definite number? Thanks

Just check the dipstick as you add and you'll be good to go

Just changed my oil the other day.
I drained all of the oil and replaced the filter fresh.
Using the MMI I needed exactly 7.25 quarts to get a full reading using the following process:
After filling it with about 6.5 quarts I started slowly filling in .25 quart increments.
The MMI reading initially said please add more oil (After 6.5 quarts).
Once I put the first .25 the MMI reading showed as min.
I watched it slowly increase from min to max once I hit 7.25 total.
At that point the dipstick read 3/4 to full (between min and max).

I think the dipstick being at its max mark is a tad bit over the max that the car really needs (probably by about .25 quarts).

I have heard other people mention that the filter holds about 3/4 quarts of oil which adds up almost precisely to what I needed (6.6 in the manual plus 3/4 = 7.35)

Hope that helps...
