IS THIS SOMETHING I CAN DO MYSELF. I HAVE CHANGED THE OIL ON MY AMERICAN CARS. THE BMW OIL CHANGE IS AWFUL EXPENSIVE!
1995 BMW 740I OIL CHANGE on 1995 BMW 740i
The oil change is expensive mostly because of the type and quantity of oil those cars use. They use a synthetic blend or a fully synthetic, and you'll need quite a bit of it for that V8. Technically, there isn't anything special out the oil change--there may be a maintenance indicator reset, which can be a barrier.
