Oil filter housing gasket.

Just a heads up. For all you E83 drivers out there with the N52 engine - although this may apply to other engines and models as well - if you notice that the area around the oil filter housing is pretty messy, you might want to consider changing the gaskets. If they have never been done - like mine - do them. If they are hard from age and leaking, chances are they may be leaking between the coolant side and oil side as well, introducing oil into the coolant - like mine - or maybe coolant into the oil - which I couldn't verify. So, don't procrastinate, get it done!

That and if you have an old oil filter cap... replace that immediately. I just had mine explode on me (1/2 the cap came off) dumping all my oil out. I drove about a block before the engine shut down.. refilled the oil and replaced the cap, now I have an intake P0341 code to deal with.

Performance one step at a time.
