Oil Capacity 2000 C230 Kompressor

My owners manual give 6.1 qts as capacity for oil change with filter. When I changed it for first time myself after warranty I find that the dipstick shows full after 5 1/2 qts. Which is right? Appreciate help. Thanks.

6.1 qts. is correct........on a " dry " engine.
You had a little residual oil in there, so 51/2 qts. sounds about right.
The main thing is, to have the dipstick registering between!!!the add & full marks.
Also, remember to start the engine, let the filter housing fill up & then take your reading.
