The Oil Filter Journey Continues

I recently was unable to resist the purchase of a complete oil filter housing to replace the one that had been leaking. I paid very little for the unit and it still boasts a cool BMW logo on the surface. I wonder if I will regret eventually not switching to the 2002 version.

1) New but old

However when I opened it up I saw that the housing does not use the standard inside o-ring but rather seems to incorporate a replacable rubber gasket. Hmm. I am still a few months away from another oil change so the suspense will build until I attempt installation.
