    While on the subject of oil and filter.
    If one does his or hers own oil and filter change does this effect the warranty in anyway?

    Not directly. Drain warm, *put in the amount the book says* not the sight glass.

    Thanks Alex that is exactly what i have done. I put in just a tad under 3.5 litres with the filter and the glass shows 3/4 full.
    I bought the filter and oil from BMW Dealer with invoice for genuine parts inc washer.
