I can't speak to Bosch, I've only ever used Mann. Others here can provide more input, as my experience is limited. My F30 is the only only BMW I've ever had and I've had it less than 3 years. I can tell you I replace my oil every 5,000 with the Mann filter kit and the oil that comes out is very clean.

FWIW- I buy the Castrol oil at Walmart and the filters on Amazon which makes the maintenance pretty inexpensive. The F30 is by far the easiest oil change of any car I've ever owned, which was a present surprise.

Lastly, for anyone doing their first oil change (like the OP), don't forget to pickup a 16 flute oil filter wrench for BMW's. Below is a link to the brand I have (although mine is an older style)…

There's actually a great inexpensive oil filter wrench in most auto parts stores but most people miss it because it's labeled for Volvo and not BMW. It's 86mm/16 flutes. Only maybe $4. See photo.

Both the crush washer with the X and the drain plug with the Z versions are one time use only, so you'd best get the right one.

I think that's contributing to the confusion.

The N55 RWD oil pan is metal. I could see the N20 RWD filter kit having a different part number if the oil pan design is different than the AWD oil pan.

The 335i has steel pan and associated bolt. Correct filter is Mann 816X (includes the o-rings and crush washer). I get mine as part of oil change kit from FCPEURO. Lifetime replacement after you buy the 2nd and refunded when you return the first. Only pay rtn shipping

BMW part number is 11427953129 - Set oil-filter element
Supersedes:
11428683196
11427566327
11427541827

Part 11427953129 was found on F30 vehicles with N20, N26 & N55 engines:
https://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/par...129&series=F30

As stated earlier in this thread, MANN, Mahle or Hengst filters will do the job.

As I originally posted, HU816X for xDrive, HU816Z for RWD. The filter is the same in both cases, what comes with it differs.
