WOLFE's DIY thread I think is best. That is why I posted my photos in his thread, even though he has a 128i and I have a 135i. It is all the same really on any 1er.
See page four, post #70 for my pics...
also on the first page, Wolfe's pics of his oil filter all torn apart is proof enough to change your oil often when the engine is still new. That is why I changed my oil and filter four times (at 1,200, 2,400, 5K, 10K) before its first BMW service at 15K miles.
