No, only the early M's with the Magnesium oil pan needed to have the plug changed out each time. You do need to change out the gasket though. It is part #5 here: http://www.realoem.com/bmw/enUS/show...diagId=11_5919

Does the gasket come with the oil filter from BMW?

Yes, it does. Changing just the o-ring is good enough!

Are you saying the new S55's don't have the Magnesium oil pan?

Edit: After digging through ETK and some forum posts that seems to be the case...

Correct, they went away from the Mag oil pans pretty early on. Honestly, you are better off for it. Magnesium is very tricky to work with and can cause serious corrosion issues with other metals. There is also the whole "likes to burn hotter than the fires of hell" aspect of the material.

Yes, it's called a crush washer.
