Good idea, Mitch.
I use a PIAA Super Plasma headlight bulb (H4) part # 70436.
Very white and bright, but pricey!

Popped out oil level window, emergency repair:
In a auto parts store (Autozone, NAPA, etc) get a 1.5" adjustable freeze plug. It is hard rubber, with a nut in the center to tighten it. Also get a can of brake cleaner and a quart of oil.
Add oil to under the bottom of the window hole. After installing the plug, add 1/2 quart. This should hold you until you install a new window glass.
Installation: The plug goes in dry, no oil or sealer. Clean the hole with the brake cleaner. You can also stick a rag into your gas tank, and clean with gas. Gas is a good cleaner/degreaser, just don't do it too often.
Install plug, it is a tight fit. Tighten as much as you can with the nut.
Ready to roll out of "middle of nowhere", back to civilization.

Probably already mentioned and exhaustively covered and discussed at other sites (IBMWR) but if you find yourself out in the middle of (or even on the outskirts) of nowhere and need an oil filter for a oilhead OR K bike any filter made for a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder Chrysler PT cruiser will work. Even the Mopar filter will work fine (but it's not a great filter). "Best" filter from all the reading I've done seems to be purolator L10241. I have a couple PT's and this makes filter buying and filter wrench finding very easy for my cars and BMW's. Come to think of it, the RT is kinda like a PT cruiser! The same filter fits my 2.4L minivan!! Now I'm going over to the PT forum to see if they have a poat that says "hey, if you're out in the middle of nowhere with your PT and need a filter ANY filter for a BMW oilhead or K bike will work.........")

Man! The things you learn on these lists! I've been takin' care of TLAT Anna's `02 LE since new and it never occure to me to compare the filter to my R11's.

BTW, have your run into the 2.4's drain plug problem yet?

I LOVE alternative parts!

I'm over 100 miles from the nearest BMW dealer. I would love to have an online database of alternate parts in case of emergency.

The coolest thing would be for one of our more computer astute members to set up a true online database where everyone could add data.

http://freewebspace.net can find free webspace providers who offer Active Server Pages, PHP, and CGI Capabilities.

Sam, BMW has been doing the wrong-crush-ring-thing since before the 1150. Seems like they include the bigger one with the oil filter. (At least that's the case at Ride West.) Be sure to ask for the smaller one if you have an 1100.
In a pinch I've used the larger one. No leaks.
Everything else has been wrong with my machine, but not crankcase leaks!
