Now, That's a Canister!

The old oil filter housing and canister had an irritating look, I decided a while back.
I found a Purolator version on German ebay for very little money some time ago. Best of all, it sported the BMW logo, something I'd never seen. So, with the assistance of Patrick at Midnight Motorsport here in Seattle, the car now has some added 60s style bling. No leaks, either.
The housing is different from others I have seen of the same vintage. There is no o-ring inside it; instead it features a permanently-installed rubber bushing.
One less bit to replace when changing the oil, another cool feature.
