BMW E46 Engine Oil and Filter Change
Procedure demonstrating how to replace the engine oil and filter assembly on a BMW E46 (3 series) BMW with the 3.0 litre 6 cylinder motor. The procedure is likely near identical to other models of BMW. Recommended engine oil for a E46 330xi is Castrol Syntec 5w30 weight oil however, in my video I used the German spec'd 0w30 synthetic oil because it has better wear specs over the North American version of Castrol Syntec oil. You could always use other synthetic oils if need be as long as it meets the oil requirements of your bimmer. For reference the oil filter "kit" is BMW part #: 11-42-7-512-300 You will need 7 litres of engine oil if you're servicing a BMW E46 330xi. Enjoy

BMW E46 3-Series Oil Change DIY
Changing oil in a 2002 BMW E46 330xi. Should be the same on any E46 model 3 series, excluding the M3. M3 will just use 10W60 Castrol oil. I used Castrol Edge Fully-Synthetic 5W30 in my 330xi, but you can use 5W40 as well.
