Me again, well it seems as if this BMW has its share of pecularities. First question for the do I jack this car up in my garage. Ive a floor jack but from what Im hearing theres a special way to jack up a Z3. It would be nice to get under it some or take the wheels off at home.

Second, and dont laugh :P but am I correct in assuming the oil filter is under that black capped canister on the "TOP" of the motor up front? No way!!! isnt it supposed to be where you can barely reach it?!

And lastly the data connector dealio with its famous pin #7 to reset the inspection does the cap come off? Is there a trick cause Im turning it lefty-loosey and it aint cooperating. Thanks for whatever help you can throw my way and I swear...Im more mechanically than it sounds, just never had a German car B4. :)
