dorphat is an unknown quantity at this point
hey guys, my sister got a BMW from my dad's coworker a few months ago. Now that she knows how to drive stick (doh!) we need to change the oil! My dad and I went out there today and jacked up the car, found the plug, but can't get the plug off. Is there a special tool/ wrench size we have to use? The wrenches that we have we couldn't get to fit on the plug.....

Nope. If there is no copper washer on the plug, there is your problem. Just need to use a little elbow grease to get it off. Make sure to replace with oem filter, which will come with a new washer and rubber seal for your filter.

nope, just a 16mm hex bolt wrench. You will need a 10 or 13 for the filter housing.

be careful when loosening the bolt though, it can have a habit of breaking off, causing major problems. I have heard of problems like this occuring. Make sure not to over torque when you put it back. Goodluck!
