Just wondering where the oil filter is located on an r50 MINI ONE

Im going to give it an oil change as I think its due one, the oil is as black as the ace of spades yet it was apparantly serviced before I got it :rolleyes:

So what type of oil filter do I need and what oil is the best? I think i got a price and the castrol stuff was £27 a gallon :eek:

Dad was in the motor factors and they said theres vauxhall oil you can get thats the same spec but Id like to put the right stuff in it

5w 30 catrol synthetic isnt it?

Not too sure where the oil filter is off the top of my head but i know its concealed in its own casing so not the usual cannister on show.
After doing some research before my last service most recommend Mobil 1, 5w30 oil, its not cheap as its fully synthetic but it is suitable for the longlife service intervals and approved by BMW.
