    To give you a rough idea, I put about 7-litres in my 124. Yours may need a little less though, I'm not sure.

    According to the Castrol site, it's 8 litres. In case that's the initial dry-fill figure (unlikely, but . . .), start with 7 and check the dipstick, as refill quantity is always less than maximum capacity, sometimes a litre or more less.

    Unless you manually drain the oil cooler as well. I'm probably going to fit a tap for this to save undoing the union each time.
