I hope it covers the very last step (see below)...

Which is the correct orientation for the oil-filler plug!

Depends on whether you stand on your head or not when you look at your BMW! Honestly, it is a square cap, dont matter jack which way the marketing scribbles on it go... I'm thinking of getting an aftermarket billet aluminum one just because I dont use Castrol oil and dont want to read it every time I open my hood either upside down or right side up!
