Welcome to Fatboys Garage! Before watching the videos and changing your oil, youre going to need a few parts. Our content is %100 free for you to view. We just ask that you support Fatboys Garage by using the image links to purchase the parts that you need for the job! Doing so helps us continue to keep delivering content! So lets get started.

If you want to keep things simple, an oil/oil filter change kit is an easy chocie. They have what you need. Our favorite oil is the liquimoly. If youre a purist, you cant go wrong with the BMW brand.  This BMW brand kit is completely BMW brand from the filter, to every washer.  Always a win!

A last great option is the Build your own Oil change kit!

We here at FBG prefer to buy each separately in order to get more for the price.  For an oil change, you need to have 6 liters of your chosen oil.  So here you can choose bigger containers of yours.  As stated earlier, we like the liquimoly 10w60.  It comes in a 5 liter container, so we buy 2 knowing we will use the left over 4 liters in the future.  This gives you the best price.  Otherwise it comes in a small 1 liter bottle as well so you can buy exactly 6 liters ( One 5 liter container + one 1 liter container)

 

You'll also need to buy an oil filter kit.  The kit needs to include all the washers and seals that youll see replaced in the video.  The BMW kit does just this and it what we recommend.  Weve also given a more inexpensive option with the

BMW recommends to change the Engine oil drain plug.  We do this periodically as suggested.  IMPORTANT- This drain plug is already in the kits at the top of the page.
