HOW TO: BMW E46 M3 Oil Change (2001 to 2006 Model Years)
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.
Feel free to comment below and thumbs up this video so that I know to make more just like them in the future.
I suggest watching this video at least once before you actually 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 seen in the video - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AMMN9O/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000AMMN9O&linkCode=as2&tag=e0d8c-20
As of 2013, I have since upgraded the Ramps to the following - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006EGAIJ2/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B006EGAIJ2&linkCode=as2&tag=e0d8c-20
Oil Drain Pan - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AMGYNA/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=e0d8c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000AMGYNA
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
or Tuner Morotsport when they're running 10% off - http://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-4090-peake-research-r5-fcx3-16-fault-code-reader-most-bmws-2001-2006.aspx
SCOTT Shop Towels can be found at Costco for a reasonable price.
And make sure you hit up http://www.blackstone-labs.com/ if would like to have your oil professionally tested. You can get a Free Test Kit here - http://www.blackstone-labs.com/free-test-kits.php (Highly Recommended - they've done countless tests for me over the years)

Part 1: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their
transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be
changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a
costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every
50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39
(5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your
BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.

A brief how to on setting up a new BMW key. This was done on a 2001 E46
1) Insert new key.
2) Turn to the #1 position and back five times.
3) Remove key
4) Press and hold the unlock button on the key
5) While holding the unlock button, press the lock button three times.
Once these steps are done, the car should lock and unlock the doors a few

BMW M3 E46 Roll-over crash in Nürburgring VLN race
More action here: http://goo.gl/SW5sCC
I pull the trusty pocketcam out just as the first few drops of rain fall on
Wehrseifen. An E46 driver loses control on the entry to the corner, and
ends up rolling all the way around. Race was the VLN #2 of 2012 and this
was only the second lap of a four-hour event!
