On my last oil change, it was dark, and I left the old rubber seal for the filter in the mounting position.

When I put in the new filter, I have two rubber seals in there.

Oil leaked pretty bad.

Moral of the story: dont' forget to take out your old rubber seal for the filter.

all good advice: I use Castrol Syntec 5-50 in the '90 325is and Valvoline Full Syn 20 -50 in the M 6 here in Dallas, but in the South, Mobil One 15 -50 is prob best for all year round routine use. Disclaimer: I own nearly 1100 shares of XOM outright and many more through mutual funds. Mike
