E46 fanatics says p/n for oil filter is 11-42-7-509-430. Dealer says something else. Which is it?

Thanks Kaz.
I have a 2001 August production 330i. Do you know if my car has this oil filter? Also, is Castrol or Mobil better?

I think the old filter was phased out sometime in 2000.

As for the oil, use any good synthetic you like. Dealer oil is pretty cheap, and is some sort of euro Castrol, though there's some speculation that its a blend.

I've used M1 for years and don't see any reason to switch.
