Just having some fun. The o ring goes on the last groove just under the cap. Push it all the way to the top and you are good to go.

If you're not sure how well your car had been maintained or how frequent the oil changes have been, you may want to change the 2 small o-rings within the filter housing as well. THey don't come with the oil filter kit so you would have to get them at an auto parts store or the BMW dealer. Probably cost .50 cents each. The Bentley Manual recommends these be changed with every oil change which, if you are following the BMW schedule, is every 25,000kms. I do my changes every 12,000kms and plan to change out the small o-rings every 24,000kms.

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.
