I have heard horrow stories about quick change shops screwing up the threads on the drainplugs (someone told me they go opposite direction, I don't know) but there is a cover to be removed below and the fileter is a little trickier to do than on most cars, and you should have a reset tool for the maintenance reminder lights on the dash. With all that said, I found a competent BMW mechanic to do my oil changes (synthetic only). Eventually I will probably do my own but for now, I'll let the mechanic.
OIL: Only use either the BMW oil or Mobil One or Casterol Synthetic (who makes the BMW oil)

Push your trip button in and hold it while turning the keys to #1 position. release the button, you should see RELEASE or REL text on the dash.. press the trip button again and hold it for 5 seconds.
