Oil Change

Can anyone lead me to the section of the owners manual that states the quantity of oil my 18 G30 540x Msport takes? I have searched high and low and the only thing i can find is BMW Longlife-01 or Longlife-14FE+, states 0w20 or 0w30.

I have not had any luck finding the -14FE in 0W30, maybe it doesnt exist?

No luck locating the capacity either...seems strange. Shouldn't be this hard to find in my manuals.

On the receipt for a recent service, it listed the oil quantity as "65" - presumably in tenths of liters.
