Oil Consumption for DD after 63k miles is roughly 3-4 tablespoons nothing more between 6,500mi oil changes. Honestly think the 3-4 tablespoons is just variations in where the oil is in the pan.

Regardless of engine type (Boxer 4, Inline 6, V8) overfilling is generally more dangerous than slightly less.

Again to make this clear, slightly MORE is worst than slightly LESS oil. So, that should help your Google rabbit hole.

Make sure you're measuring it right, measure it warm, manual suggest during gas pumping which I think everyone says is a little too quick and not the greatest. Maybe it's due to most gas stations being nearly 100% flat.

I haven't seen any measurable oil consumption between oil changes. In fact this oil remains extremely clean as well. In previous cars I've had engine oil look black at 3k miles. This car's oil still looks like honey at 5k. I'm at 30k miles so far in total.

Wait So I should measure when the oil is kind hot?

I always measure oil when it's completely cold. Let me get back with updated result.

* Ok looks like i'm tiny bit over on the 2nd dot.... So my engines is definitely leaking a bit of oil... =___=

This sounds insulting but that's simply because it's over text - not the intention. Please read your manual, and watch a few maintenance videos about general car maintenance (not just Boxer engines) generally all oils are measured warm with cold being the exceptions.
