oil filter question 2007 3 series N52
EDIT: Ignore. Found what I needed. Thanks for looking.
I did search, but didn't find the information I was looking for.
2007 N52 (E92)
At the dealership a couple months ago, they told me I was due for a new oil filter. They would not change it, however, when they discovered that a performance filter had been installed. The SA told me: "buy a cleaning kit...easy to do...available at any parts store...oh, had here's a BMW filter just since you're owed one." BTW, he also said the tech remarked that my filter wasn't very dirty and that this wasn't an issue or immediate concern
Questions: is the performance filter really as easy to clean and replace as he suggested?
Is there a good DIY video or write up for this?
Could I remove the performance filter and just put in the BMW paper filter for a while?
In other words, what do I need to know OR should I just go to my indy place and ask them to do it?
Cheers and thanks in advance,
