I purchased the F109S setup. On the N55 motor, the plug is pointed virtually straight down. It will thread in, but the F109S body is just too large. When attempting to close the oil drain plug door, you're left with a substantial "hump" in the undercarriage plate. All it will take is a simply bump in the road and your Fumoto plug will be ripped right off.

It's a shame because I've used these before on other vehicles and the product worked so well. Maybe it will fit on my wife's X3 with the N20 motor.
I used the new Fumoto SX series and there is no hump on the oil change door.
The SX series is a two piece design which has a right angle, and thus the lowest profile.

Even with the redesign, it extends a bit farther than a plain old drain plug. Are you able to take a pic with it installed so we can get an idea of clearances? I don't have have an issue with the regular drain plug. I apply upward pressure while unthreading and pull away quickly to minimize the mess, but since I change my oil every 5-6k miles, it would make my frequent changes a BIT more convenient.
