Default Enough Transmission fluid?

I just did a transmission oil change on my MS3, I put in a full 3 quarts of MT90 and it did not seem to be full to the point that is was coming back out of the fill hole? I hope there is enough in there, what would I notice if there wasn't?

Did you fill it with only the front on jack stands? If the car isn't level that will change the amount it takes. 2.5 liters or 2.6 quarts is all it needs.

I always refill once the car is back down on even ground. Usually takes 2.8 ish before it starts running back out.

Ya I filled it with a jack only, so the car was tilted slightly and that was probably exaggerated more so by the slope of my driveway, should I drain some? What kind of damage could be done?

Ok, well three bottles of mt90 is 2.85 so maybe it is only slightly over filled and ok?

Put it on level ground, open the fill bolt and let whatever overage drain out. Pretty simple for piece of mind.

Put it on level ground and drained some. Surprisingly, only drops came out.
