Here the new B48 engine in a new X1 front wheel drive and also 4×4,,,,,I know interesting,,,,I finally got to work on one and drive one and check it out,,,had to perform its first oil service. Here the location of the oil filter under the car,,,,you can see there is a small drain plug at the bottom of the filter,,,,the new factory and yes I said factory oil filter came with the drain plug for the oil filter,,,,,I know the aftermarket filter will not come with one,,,,changing the oil filter is not a easy thing,,,,,not enough room to get a socket on,,,,you need a short 32 mm socket,,,,if not the subframe gets in the way. Here something interesting,,,I was resetting the oil service and noticed you can only reset the oil service, vehicle check ,and brake flush,,,,you can not reset or see the front and rear brakes,,,,,the brakes are old school E46 only when the brake sensor starts to touch will it indicate brakes are due,,,,,,ok driving this car and new engine,,,,power was ok for this car,,,it shifted good through the gears,,,,it felt like a front wheel drive car but also you can feel the 4×4,,,,headroom and interior space was ok,,,,you can sit 4 male adults in this car no problem,,,also the gear shifter was old school,,,you actually have to move it into the next shift gate.,,,I enjoyed driving the car,,,,will see how this new engine goes in the future.
