Ok, just received my oil change kit from getbmwparts.com. It's 9 bottles of engine oil, 2 small metal washers (obviously for the 2 drain plugs), one large rubber ring (i'm assuming for the oil filter), and one small rubber o-ring roughly 5 mm in diameter. Where does the small o-ring go? I was also surprised that it's only the inner filter element. What do you guys use to remove the oil filter housing? A big mutha f'n socket? Just to be sure, you can do the oil change when the engine's completely cold right (so cal room temperature), because I read in that manual the car has to be above 70 ... not sure if they meant if you're checking oil level only, or also when you do a complete oil change.
