Thanks for the suggestion. I went looking but did not find a guide for the oil change. I did find several comments by owners complaining about this engine's excessive oil consumption that BMW claims is normal - 1 quart every 1500 miles. Nine quarts is the oil capacity with filter and 29 ft/lb is the oil drain plug torque.
