just checked my oil level cold (not driven since last night) and it was sitting between L and F
Warmed up my engine for few minutes, turned it off and waited 20 minutes. Checked the dipstick again and it was sitting at around the same level as before.
So I ended up pouring in more oil. Thanks everyone for your input. Much appreciated as I was worried I overfilled :)
Mine looks the same at times going a little higher but I notice the stick seems dry down the middle in the red circle. Mine is usually solid right at the F mark after a change which is 5.07qts on my Optima. On your stick, I would call the level at the black line. It is solid to that point with no oil right above until you see the streaky area start.
