E90 Oil Change (DIY)



I would like to share my experience of changing the oil in my 2006 BMW 325i (e90) with sport package. My car has only 2300 miles on it, but I thought I should do a post break-in period oil change. ...

Great photos, well done. One suggestion, prime the filter before installing.

Pour a thin stream of new oil over the outside of the filter all the way around. [also, after the filter and drain plug is in place, pour the 1st qt of oil into the center of the filter (and on into the engine and sump), before putting the filter cover on. This fills the bottom part of the filter housing with oil, and soaks the bottom part of the filter.] This helps prevent that moment of oil starvation while a new filter is filled with oil.

Great, thanks! I will try this next time I change oil (should be next week).

Nice post! When under warranty (when the stealership would be picking up the tab), they told me the oil didn't need to be changed until 20,000 miles. I trust them as far as I can throw them.

I change the oil myself every year or 3000 miles, whichever comes first. My 2006 325i has 65,000 miles and runs perfect.

Nice post!
