Did my first oil change on my car yesterday!

Just picked up my 2012 M3 a couple of weeks ago and wanted to start fresh with an oil change. It took me a bit longer than planned as it was my first time doing it on this car, but overall a very easy process. Great advice on the forum threads that helped me out. ECS tuning kit was great and arrived promptly.

did you use ramps, stands or a lift? I used a buddies lift for mine and oil changes are a breeze.

Oh man a lift would be awesome. I used a floor jack to hoist the car up on ramps. It’s too low for me to drive up the ramps as it scrapes.
