Re: Can I use this Oil Filter for LT

That's why I only said it would fit.
I use a wix 51348 it has a sticker on it for the part number. I remove the sticker befor installing.
I have not had any problems with the paint comming off wix filters, but I don't know about Baldwin.

Re: Can I use this Oil Filter for LT

It'll probably be OK, but there's a small chance that it might not.

The factory LT filter is $20 from BMW, including the o-ring and drain plug gasket (part # 11 00 2 300 053).

Or you can buy a quality Mann filter from Beemer Boneyard for $8.95.

So the question is, are you willing to risk serious and expensive engine damage to save a couple of dollars?

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
