Servicing my BMW

Hi guys,

I am thinking of servicing my E46 BMW 318ci. First time doing a DiY job. Has anyone got clear instructions or anything handy detailing how to do a service without ****ing up. Main thing I need to know is what's the best oil, and how much do I need once I drain out the old oil. I have all the parts from plugs, air, oil and cabin filters.

Hope ye can help me. Thanks

MikeShiner, the link that Offshore24 is great link, also try to use the search function as there are tons of posts on DIY jobs that can help you out. More than likely any question(s) you might have, have been asked before and talked about.
