While on some carburetted cars - you might still have to remove it from the block to change oil (I didn't on the 73 CS here.) - it eliminates all those spring loaded internal grommets and washers that are often removed by the jiffy lube troglodites over a 20 year period.Plus - unlike the early housing BMW can still offer the correct large rubber O ring! ;-)

When installing / reinstalling the filter head - make sure NOT to overtighten the bolts - and torqe them in sequence evenly. Warping the aluminum filter head is easy to do - but easily avoided if you're careful.

filter assembly appears sold. Thanks all.
