It's the same across all BMW models for like 10 years, so any "BMW right latch/lock" from 2007+ would work.

How's Porsche diesel maintenance costs compare to ours? I think they require 5k oil changes, plus I imagine the parts and labor are pricier (not that BMW is cheap, but still).

There's no CCV filter in US version of M57.

Burning 1 qrt of oil b/w changes is ok. By 100K, besides the normal wear, there's plenty of possible things to leak.
