1.2 litres

oil level on the dip stick is more important than absolute volume

Actually oil and filter is 1.0L
Just oil is 950ml
Complete engine rebuild is 1.2L

Make sure you drain both plugs and remove the dipstick when draining oil.

There's free manuals in the stickys if you don't have one.

Above is correct, but with my '08, i use 1.0litres for oil change, 1.1litres for oil + filter...

Not saying its right, but its what i do, and works for me... :excuseme:
