Oil filter housing tool

Anyone down here in San Diego got one of these handy? Its Sunday and everything is closed and I can't get the damn housing cracked loose. I tried an oil filter strap wrench and another 3 prong universal type wrench and I just can't get the guy cracked loose.

Damn never mind. Went to O'Reilly and got an oil filter channel lock like pliers set and was able to crack it loose. Man I was expecting the oil filter housing to have that 27 or 33 mm bolt head on it. Meh oh well at least its off.

^^Yup, that is why I bought an oil filter cap tool from Hazet. I think Leslie tools(sold at Sears, Harbor Frieght or AutoZone and the like) also makes one. As well as you can buy one from any BMW dealer. See my post #6 bellow...

Here is also a great writeup JimD made... I posted my 135i oil change pics in his DIY thread.
