It's in the engine compartment just to the left of the power steering reservoir as you face the front of the car. It's not a metal cannister-type filter. The element is available from BMW dealers and includes a new O-ring for the filter housing and a washer for the drain plug.
Is it easy to change?
Very. Just unscrew the top of the housing and lift the housing with the old filter attached
(have something ready to catch the drips). Replace with the new filter and O-ring, replace the cap and torque it to 25 NM.
