You might find best success filling to 1/2 quart low (between the high and low marks on the dip stick). Your spyder has plenty of extra oil capacity beyond the normal stock VW engine case. (You have an extended extra capacity sump, plus you have another quart in the filter. So in a sense, you won't end up 1/2 quart low but more like 2 quarts high plus whatever is in the remote oil cooler)"
Yes, your Spyder has plenty of extra capacity beyond the stock VW engine case, but just something to remember- the oil in the filter and remote cooler isn't available to the oil pick up should it be uncovered during acceleration or cornering- that is why you run either a larger sump or a dry sump system.
