    Can you measure the distance between parallel faces on the hex drive?

    An alternate approach is taping the epoxy with a small punch until it pops off or shatters. Once a small separation (gap) is created in the current bond, the rest should just pop off

    Get a chisel and try to remove the existing nut or if that is too hard then you bond another nut on top it knowing you wont twist the existing nut off

    proper surface prep is your friend and I would use JB Weld but thats just me

    The 3 machine screws will be the best option for me. I have never seen anything like this. It does look like the previous owner did try to bond a nut to it. The bottom is definitely sanded down.

    Is that a nut bonded with epoxy to the filter or a socket shaped cavity in a mound of epoxy.

    It looks like someone either made a mold out of the epoxy or it was a nut glued on it. I just got her a month ago. Itís pretty strange to me

    Looks like someone's bright idea that didn't quite work out. Chisel or grind or file off the epoxy so that the proper oil filter wrench fits on. Buy proper oil filter wrench. Then remove filter. If possible, have the bike warmed up as I've found it makes filter removal easier.

    Got it off

    Thanks to all the BMW wizards who helped me. I ended up going the 3 screws method after I rounded her off. It was a napa gold filter on it.

    The Napa gold filter that I tried took a smaller filter wrench than the OEM filters perhaps the guy found his filter wrench did not fit and tried to get inventive

    NAPA and most other auto parts stores sell a cup wrench to fit the NAPA filter I am sure. I had to buy a new one to fit the 64mm filters on our G310s. About $5.

    Are filters getting smaller because they are better?

    Filters are not getting smaller. This is a perceptual phenomenon created by the fact that everything else is getting just a little bit bigger.

    The same phenomenon may be observed in belts and certain articles of clothing. See "Expansion of the Universe" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expansion_of_the_universe
