'03 530i My First Time Changing My Own Oil - What Kind Should I use

HI,

I am trying to change my own Oil on my 2003 503i. What kinda of oil should i Use?

I know I have to use synthetic. Anyone have a brand they can recommend? How many bottles -2?

Also any other tips for changing my oil? I know that the plug faces sideways and not towards the ground.

Any other things I should look out for?

Thanks

Look in your owners manual it will tell you how much oil you need and what type.

I mean no disrespect but you seriously should get a manual or just pay someone to do it.
