Magnetic oil pan drain plug
I am planning to change the oil now that I have gotten to 5k miles, and just ordered the filter cap tool, filter and other supplies from bavauto.
I bought the magnetic oil drain plug and plan to use it at some point. Does anyone think 5k miles is too soon? The microscopic metal fragments help with initial break in, but eventually become detrimental. I am going to let the dealer do the free services at the 10k intervals, so the next time I change the oil on my own probably won't be until 15k.
