HeyCustomer thanks for the question on your BMW,

The 1999 540i with the 4.4 liter V8 engine has a capacity of 7.5 liters, which is 7.925 quarts. BMW recommends using synthetic SAE 5W-30 for this car. It has a cartridge type oil filter element mounted in the engine compartment on left, drivers side, in front of the top of the schock, big six sided black cap.
