thinking back to when i removed the filter:

i rode the bike down to the back shed,drained the oil(skid plate was already off) then i drilled a hole in the filter,at approx position 9pm
little if any oil came out.then i rotated filter to bring the drill hole to the bottom,and let it drain before removing,just to minimise the mess(i neednt have bothered)
there was hardly any oil in the filter
so the filter had fully drained back to the engine, after 10 mins of standing

so i will monitor this dry engine rattle,and if it returns,i will spin on another filter

i cant believe the supposed BMW techs giving this dry start symptom the thumbs up
the rattle itself is of little concern.but it indicates a dry engine,and pistons flying in and out without oil,is a concern

prob why i try to do my own services

That doesn’t sound right - every time I change the oil in my 18 LC, plenty of oil flows out of the filter when I remove it.
