2001 2.51 Roadster Z3 Maintenance??

WE have owned this Z3 since it was new, and it has only 47,234 miles.
My wife has always had her Z3 serviced at the dealer.

I have decided to start doing the oil & filter changes, including the engine air filter myself.

Let me see if I have the basic info to do the work:

1. The oil filter takes a 36 mm socket to remove
2. The oil plug takes a 17 mm socket to remove & is located on the passenger side of the engine oil pan that is finned
3. I must drain the oil to change the oil filter
4. This model takes about 6.9 quarts of synthetic 5-30 weight oil

Simple questions, I know, but I have followed this procedure, and don't want to start the engine for my wife to drive it without some feedback.

Thanks, Thomboy
