I don't see why that wouldn't work for a street driven car. The filter element is reusable so you just need to clean it. The bad part is it does seem messier than the OEM setup.

The other bad part is I need to start selling my stash of OEM M54 oil filters...
That was the part that worried me... the fact that the car is then no longer serviced like an OEM BMW. I guess I might just need to get over that.

You know anyone that has experience with those racing/reusable filter elements? It seemed so foreign to me that I was really hesitant to move forward with it.
