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://amzn.to/1tMQRZA
As of 2013, I have since upgraded the Ramps in this video to the following - http://amzn.to/1nSsQwG
Oil Drain Pan - http://amzn.to/1nyEX3x
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://amzn.to/1wiwwxt
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.

Why Not To Buy A Mercedes
Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 47 years, shows why it may not be a
smart idea to purchase a mercedes,especially a used one. The high cost of
repair combined with insane over engineering often tends to empty your
pockets of cash faster than you
can fill them back up. And, If you like my car help, be sure to watch my

In this DIY and How-To video, we'll show you how to change the power
steering fluid and filter on a later model BMW or MINI. Follow along as we
replace the reservoir/filter and flush the fluid on a 2001 330xi,
The power steering fluid and filter are one of the most overlooked
preventive maintenance areas on most BMWs and MINIs. (Think about it --
when did you ever changed the power steering fluid on any vehicle?) On
BMWs, this system provides Boost not
just for the steering but often for the power brakes and self-leveling
suspensions, as well. Time and time again, we'll look at the power steering
fluid in a BMW or MINI and it is filthy! (Running on old, degraded fluid
will shorten the useful life of the steering rack/gearbox, brake Booster, fluid pump, etc.) The fluid should be
bright, clear red or, depending on the application, just clean and clear
One of the reasons this system gets overlooked is that there is no direct
provision for changing the fluid; therefore the job is a bit more tedious.
But it is not so tedious that it should be ignored. We recommend a biennial
(every other year) or 50,000-mile fluid change for the power Boost system. Additionally, most systems have
a fluid filter incorporated into the fluid reservoir. (A lot of mechanics
do not even know that this filter exists!) Change the filter when changing
the fluid. (This is also a great time to replace any leaking power steering
hoses.) There are three different fluids used in BMWs and MINIs; the
correct fluid is typically noted on a label on the reservoir cap. We can
assist in determining the proper filter and fluid for your BMW or MINI.

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
times to let you know you were successful.
Once this is done, you can start the car and use the key as usual.
