I have changed the oil on my car (6 months ago) and am about to do it again. I ordered an oil filter from local dealer and got the standard M10 filter. Also when having my timing chain replaced (not at the dealer, a local indipendant)i asked the guys at the shop what filter they reccomended they did not seem to concerned that i had the m10 filter in.
If there is a sygnificant benefit i would to like to know about it
Also what oil do you lads use? i have been advised that mineral or semi synth is the best. I currently use GTX Magnitec (basic engines) after seeking advice from dealer and independant!

Brits, can someone confirm that using a generic BMW 4cyl oil filter is a big no no? Bascially I filled an order on eurocarparts and to bring my order up to value but to avoid payig extra delivery I added on an oil filter which was recommended for my car but it is the M10 4cyl one.

Ive been told, and now know there is actually a special filter for the M3. Would it be a big no no to use it? i guess it would be. Damn
