I used a straight head screwdriver to turn a little dial and the door swung down to reveal the drain bolt directly above it. Then I used a 17mm box wrench to loosen the bolt and drain the oil. The BMW oil filter I purchased also included a new copper drain bold washer and a large O-ring and small O-ring for the oil filter cap. All in all it's a very easy job, especially compared to my old 06 Si. Good luck !

Thanks for this info !!!!


The last words on the powerplant should go to a clearly overwhelmed Hormazd Sorabjee, editor and publisher of Autocar India: There is something simply magical about BMWs in-line six. It has a creamy smoothness that makes velvet feel like sandpaper.
