E53, N62 engine, oil filter is on the bottom of the engine. Actually an easier oil change than my Buick and I'm not one to say much is easy on an E53.. I've had my oring leak here before and it doesn't present anything on the front of the engine but the belly pan will sure tell the tale as will the bottom of the engine itself.
