Update: 1/21/18 CPV O Ring Change, Oil/Filter Change, Vanos Filter Change


I had an oil leak from my CPV for some time now. I kept pushing it off since everyone said it's a pain with headers on the car. Well after getting advice from fellow E46 M3 owner friends saying it was easy. I was able to knock it out and change the O Ring. I used the socket and O Ring from Mpower22 on this forum. The most challenging part if any was figuring out which combination of tools to use. I used 3/8th ratchet with 6 inch extension with an adapter to fit to my 1/2 inch socket. I cleaned the area with brakleen and will inspect later to make sure the leak is gone.

DIY Link can be found here:

Link for the tool and O Ring can be found here:

First time changing my oil with something other than Castrol. Went with Motul 8100 X-Power 10W60. Too soon to really provide any feedback. She was running cooler than usual but it also was 39 degrees out. I think I'll be getting a fluid extractor moving forward.

Changed my vanos filter and O rings. I do it every oil change. Very quick and easy.

Of course, I always try to document everything, never know it may help someone out.

Crickets.. Not much going on here. We got snow a few days ago. Waiting and hoping for better weather.


I did receive my Garagewelt skateboard deck and put it up in the garage. This setup will do until I move to a new place with a bigger garage.

Seriously! I'm so over this damn snow. It seems like every week we get hit with a storm.
