Oil change on the M30B35

tongue Oil change on the M30B35
I recently did a little maintenance on the M30. I haven't done 3000km on the car, but the last service was done in 2015 so I decided to do as much as I can.
The oil wasn't in a good state and the air filter was also quite dirty for a car that did so little distance.

Also, you might notice that the sump plug was not fit for purpose. A previous owner made up a nut to fit there and it is totally wrong and caused me many oil leaks over the years.
Another reason to do maintenance like this yourself!!!! Censored

Thanks for the recommendation! The HX3 has already made it much better, and with my next oil change, I will give the HX7 a try! Thumbsup2
