Mein Auto: 2012 BMW 328xi E90
If this helps, I just did my 2012 E90 and it was a breeze. I purchased filter cap wrench at pep boys for $3. The cap easily came off. Make sure you note the white dot location, and re-tighten to the same position. It won't go any further. Jacking up the car was the most labor intensive component. I jacked up all 4 sides. If you plan to do this, I recommend you place wood ontop of the jacks to protect the car. The oil drain plug was 17mm. The E90 has an electronic dip stick, so I ended up putting in 6 quarts even. Don't overfill. Oil(5W-30 synthetic) was $32, BMW filter(from dealer)$13. The filter comes with 2 O-rings (1 large; 1 small)which need to be replaced on the filter housing. The whole process was very easy. I am looking forward to the transmission.
