This is a straight forward oil change on the F10 550i

Oil Filter PN 11-42-7-583-220 $16.35
BMW 5W-30 Oil PN 07-51-0-017-866 $5.94/qt

Capacity is 9 quarts, but I filled up with 8-5/8 quarts including filter

prices above are from shipped.

View from the front to rear, two access panels, center is the pan, passenger side is the filter. Remove the 8mm bolt to twist off the panel

The Bottom half of the filter housing unscrews to expose the paper filter element. New filter element gets installed numbers facing down towards plastic housing. Add 8.5 quarts and then check for any leaks and iDrive for oil level.

I sent out the used oil (2,500 miles) to Oil Analyzers Inc for analysis
