Did my first oil change.

So owning the CPO 328i for the past 6 months, the service due light finally came on last week. Figured I could call the dealership and get a quote for an interim oil change and was quoted 253$ . Then I called an independent shop close to my apartment and was quoted 95-105$. Made an appointment with the indy shop, showed up, and the guy didn't even have me down. Decided that the indy shop was kinda sketchy, I don't believe they would use BMW approved oil. I decided to just do it on my own rather than trusting somebody else.

Went to the dealership, paid 90$ and some change for 7 qts of oil and oil filter. Used couple of DIY guides, and 45 minutes later I was done. Everything was fairly simple, as easy as any other car.

Next time I will save my pennies and buy the cheaper kit off Tischer.
