If you own a BMW with an N20, S55, N54, or N55 engine you can almost be assured that at some point you will be replacing the oil filter housing gasket seal. The seal in question is a soft rubber seal that sits in the filter housing and seals it to the engine block. Over time this seal due to exposure to heat and oil will become hard, shrink, and eventually lose its seal. What then results is a nice oil puddle underneath your vehicle originating from the oil filter housing.
Oil leaks are never a good thing, but this is a high-pressure oil leak that can have negative effects on the performance of your engine as well. If you have detected this oil leak it is recommended to make the repair immediately.

- (1) Genuine OEM Oil Filter Housing Gasket
