BMW recommends all V8 engine to upgrade to the newer style by adding the stalk to the existing cannister...

Old filter is metal ends and the top is sealed... Also stands on it own. The newer filter is simple hollow unit that slips onto the stalk... very simple upgrade. The stalk also have a checkball so it keep oil there all the time... solving the pressure problem.
