Try $28.50 here . I obviously buy it from Tischer, at around $13 shipped.

Some dealers are only using 8 liters, hence the low level from the start. You need to check oil level after every oil change. Search for the proper way to check it with this stupid sensor. It's pretty consistent once you get the hang of it.

By the way, if you drain the oil long enough (and suck the oil filter hosing dry ), you'd need 9.5L. I just changed mine, and that's what I needed. And yes, I always keep level topped off in all my vehicles, but hasn't been necessary to add anything to the M3 yet. Hope it stays that way. Later.
