It's rewarding to do work on your own M3 and Oil Changes are one of the easiest things you can do. I hope my comprehensive DIY instructions can give you the confidence needed to do your own oil change.
I suggest watching this video at least once before you start start changing your oil.
Ramps or Jack/Jackstands & Chock Block

Turner Motorsport does a great job keeping the oil & oil filter prices cheap. Be sure to check them out when ordering - http://www.turnermotorsport.com/BMW-E46-M3/c-11-bmw-maintenance-parts.aspx
For everything else, I usually find Amazon.com to be the cheapest (& Tax Free)
These are the Ramps I have - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000AMMN9O/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=e0d8c-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000AMMN9O

The Peake Tool can be had for about the same price that any dealer would charge you for 1 diagnostic fee.

Here is my tour of what SMG can do. this was a video designed to educate some members of a forum on how SMG is not an automatic gearbox, but a manual, with some electronic assistance and the ability to use an "auto" mode.
Part 1: Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid & Filter On A BMW/MINI
blog.BavAuto.com -- Most people think that because BMW and MINI call their transmission fluids "Lifetime" or "Extended Service" it doesn't have to be changed. Not true. To get the most out of your transmission and avoid a costly, catastrophic failure, you should change the fluid and filter every 50,000 miles. Watch Bavarian Otto demonstrate how to do this on a BMW E39 (5 series 97 thru 03). You'll find the specific fluid and filter your BMW/MINI needs in our online store at www.BavAuto.com.
eas | aurora Angel Eye Installation Overview - 2003 e46 325Ci
Installation overview of aurora Angel Eye kit on a 2003 BMW 325Ci.
We have seen lots of Angel Eye kits on the market in the past 5 years. Everything from separate lightsources, CCFL tubes, failing inverters and LED kits with gaps and warranty issues with vendors. What happens when you can't find something for your BMW on the market that suits your needs?
You simply design them yourself.
Introducing aurora, an entirely redesigned angel eye kit for your BMW from eas - unlike anything else on the market.
aurora produces a fully uniform look using a 60 LED array, which matches most Xenon maps for an OEM look and are very bright - these can even be seen in daytime. You will immediately know another vehicle with a set after yours are installed.

4x BMW E46 M3 CSL - BURNOUT Sounds!!
During a track day on circuit Park Zandvoort I recorded four BMW E46 M3 CSL's! At least one of the CSL's has a aftermarket Exhaust (don't know which one). You can see some really nice fly by sounds. When they leaving the circuit, they made some nice donuts.
