I've changed my oil, and the oil pan (and plug) are most definitely black plastic. I have a US 2013 328i with 6MT (model 133N according to the build sheet), and the label on the hood says "ULEV", *not* "SULEV". So either you are wrong, the BMW docs are wrong and I have an N26, or they have changed the oil pan on the N20. Which do you suppose it is (seriously)?
