service parts

For those of you that DIY your oil changes - where do you get the filters/oil from? I used to change oil all the time in my cars and got away from it for a while but actually miss doing some of the maintenance myself.

I know I could go to the dealershup but curious if there are better deals to be had online, etc.

Also - given how low this car is presumably you need a floorjack rather than ramps to get underneath.

thanks in advance for any guidance

Ordered a service kit from ecstuning.com - contains oil/filter/replacement plugs etc.

Just after I received the kit, got a offer inthe mail from the local BMW dealer for an oil change for $99. Guess I'll keep the oil kit for next time!
