Oil

I recently changed the oil my self--- about a week ago. The old oil looked OK. I will check the cap when I get home.

Wish they had a dip stick in the Z4. Drives me crazy.

It seems that there is no hands down filter that is better than Mann... I will continue with it.

It has served me well so far.
