Four of a Kind: Our E9X M3 (S65) Oil Filter Cap is Here

The E9X M3 is a car that holds a special place in our hearts. It's been the longest tenured occupant of our garage and for good reason—the solitary V8 M3 is an absolute treat to drive. It is rather fitting, then, that the last of our four oil filter cap releases in early 2022 is for that glorious S65 motor.

Attention to Detail

Seeing that this very chassis was largely responsible for what Future Classic has become, it was important for us to craft this cap with the utmost care. Holding these caps in hand, it’s immediately apparent that each of them echo our commitment to the smallest aesthetic details. Special CNC tools were specifically sourced to accomplish exactly that and, as a result, each cap is a marvel right out of the DMG Mori 5-Axis.

Something for everyone: four oil filter caps to suit a wide array of BMW models

Seeing all four cap models next to each other, the family ties are clear even despite the size and various detail differences. The S65-variant also has minimalist, consistent laser work: on the top, the data you need to know (tool size and torque spec) and a small nod to Future Classic. On the side, the part number is cleverly hidden below the cap's belt line so that it disappears when the cap is fitted.

Why Aluminum?

Because of aluminum’s propensity to handle and dissipate heat, it is an excellent material from which to build our oil filter housing caps. By getting your oil up to temperature quickly, but tangentially evacuating excess heat, the aluminum oil filter housing cap will help your fluid operate within its working range while effectively preventing thermal breakdown (at the threshold where your motor oil will degrade and lose viscocity). It is largely the reason why heat sensitive components, like your radiator, are constructed from the same material.

The E9X M3 variant joins the G8X (S58), F8X (S55), and the F1X (S63) models in further broadening our product line for the most discerning BMW enthusiasts.
