I then undo the drain bolt and clean up the filter housing

I then replace the filter and wait for the oil to stop draining out the bottom.

The BMW instructions to the dealers is to open up the filter first, before lifting the car and opening the drain plug.
Thanks! Now I'm assured of a drip free oil change!
