I have a 2000 BMW 740iL and I swear the oil hasn't been changes in almost 10,000 miles. I just got it done and now not even 2,000 miles later the cap to the oil filter housing is leaking AND the Housing itself if broken right below where a wire attaches to the housing. You can move it slightly and see that oil is now coming out of the area where it is broken. How hard is it change this housing unit out? you can see on the diagram here the oil is leaking out of #1 about where that little platform is. http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=GH83&mospid=47531&btnr=11_1414&hg=11&fg=30
