Does anyone have an suggestions for this process. Im under the understanding that you just put the tube down the dip stick and start pumpin' (obv with removal of the oil filter etc). Is there anything else that I should be aware of seeing as I have never done an oil change on my e46 before.

Use the largest tube that will fit in the oil dipstick tube as that will speed up the process.

Make sure you use some rags around the oil filter assembly when you take out the oil filter 'cause oil tends to drip.

That's it!! No fuss no muss and no jacking!!!

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
