Bit messy given the first time, but a very interesting experience. The rear sump took ever to drain. From lifting the car to finishing took under an hour.

Took for a drive around the block and the idrive oil level check showed Max with OK. Very pleased with the effort.

I didn't reset the interval and still showing 13k km till the next change.
Unfortunately, Edge 10W-60 is not available in the US. But, I only pay about US$12/liter through the dealer.
