Though if it was slightly above max to start out with, then that would be marginally more worrying.

Real disaster stories tend to be associated with serious overfilling. Personally, I wouldn't lose any sleep over an extra half litre, but other people might have different ideas.
ahh good, wont worry too much then
the dipstick is ok
its just plastic and black in colour
im used to VW's with metal ones...
the black colour of this makes it difficult to see how much oil is in, wether it be too much or too little

is the 6 six squares above the word oil , on the dashboard ok?
or pointing me to a fault?
