I changed my oil today and put in 5 qrts. On a cold engine it is reading above the A line on the dipstick into the MAX region. Is this a problem? It seemed a bit strange that the 2.0t only takes 4.8 qrts or something and not an even 5. Let me know if I should remedy this or if I am worrying about nothing, thanks.

I'd say you are fine. If you didnt presoak the filter it will soak up some of the extra and some still has to go to the turbo. Its not like you pickled the engine with oil. Turn it over and idle it for a bit then check the stick. It will go down into the range Im sure.
