The current level is perfect. Do not add more until the level reaches the lower mark. One point to note here is that the M Roadster engine hold SEVEN QUARTS of oil. In part this is to prevent damage if oil is a quart or two low.
It's suprising that you have so much oil left. Many M Roadsters, including mine, lose a fair amount of oil (say a quart every thousand miles), particularly when new.
