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. Tools needed: Ramps or Jack/Jackstands & Chock Block 3/8" ratchet with extension 13mm socket 6mm allen/hex socket Torque wrench (18 ft lbs) Flathead screwdriver SCOTT Shop Towels Oil drain pan w/ 7qt minimum capacity Funnel Safety Glasses Latex/Nitrile Gloves Peake Research R5/FCX3-16 Tool (for oil interval reset) Parts required: (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 - For everything else, I usually find to be the cheapest (& Tax Free) These are the Ramps seen in the video - As of 2013, I have since upgraded the Ramps in this video to the following - Oil Drain Pan - 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 - or Tuner Morotsport when they're running 10% off - SCOTT Shop Towels can be found at Costco for a reasonable price. And make sure you hit up if would like to have your oil professionally tested. You can get a Free Test Kit here - (Highly Recommended - they've done countless tests for me over the years) Here's my video for resetting the oil service interval - Feel free to post any comments or questions that you might have.

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
