I know a great shop in Castro Valley.

They did all the work on my e30 M3 and my e36 M3. They also build race cars for club racing.

It's really not hard at all, just get yourself those rubber strap wrenches, and a 17?mm socket, and maybe ramps. total is like 80 bucks. Pays for itself in a few oil changes

Depends on what car you drive. BMW recommends Castrol but everyone has their own take on brand.

What exactly does the dealership use? I've heard from some they prefer to use something else since dealership isn't full synthetic? Also, does oil fiter really matter?

Thanks!

Dealer uses BMW oil. It's full synthetic. Yes, oil filter matters.
