My Daily Drive to Work in E46 M3 @ 165mph on Autobahn
My drive to work everyday is pretty fun with narrow village roads and a touch of the autobahn (A62 to A6) and then to Ramstein AFB to the flightline. Amazing thing is driving relatively hard I still get 20 mpg!
HOW TO: BMW E46 M3 Oil Change (Easy DIY)
It's rewarding to do work on your own M3 and Oil Changes are one of the easiest things you can do. I hope my comprehensive DIY instructions can give you the confidence needed to do your own oil change.
I suggest watching this video at least once before you start start changing your oil.
Ramps or Jack/Jackstands & Chock Block
3/8" ratchet with extension
6mm allen/hex socket
Torque wrench (18 ft lbs)
SCOTT Shop Towels
Oil drain pan w/ 7qt minimum capacity
Peake Research R5/FCX3-16 Tool (for oil interval reset)
(6) liters - Castrol TWS 10W-60 Oil (Part #07510009420)
(1) - Mahle Oil Filter Kit (Part #OX187D)
Turner Motorsport does a great job keeping the oil & oil filter prices cheap. Be sure to check them out when ordering - http://www.turnermotorsport.com/BMW-E46-M3/c-11-bmw-maintenance-parts.aspx
For everything else, I usually find Amazon.com to be the cheapest (& Tax Free)
These are the Ramps I have - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AMMN9O/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=e0d8c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000AMMN9O

The Peake Tool can be had for about the same price that any dealer would charge you for 1 diagnostic fee. Amazon is usually the cheapest place to pick one up - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002CJE38M/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=e0d8c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002CJE38M

Driving My M3 On the Highway
I took the M3 out for a quick spin when the roads were dry and filmed my trip to and from the gym with my GoPro HD attached to the driver side window on the inside of my M3. The camera angle is interesting in these clips and I may use it again for future use.
