This part is listed by BMW as BMW part number 7119904550 (07 11 9 904 550) and is described as Genuine BMW Screw Plug,which is the oil drain plug used on several BMW "M" engines, including the S54 3.2 liter, S65 4.0 liter V8, and the S85 5.0 liter V10.
You'd find this drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan on 2001-2006 E46 M3, 2001-2002 Z3 M Roadster (with S54), 2006-2010 E60 M5 and E63 M6, and the 2008-2013 E9X M3, including E90 M3 sedan, E92 M3 coupe, and E93 M3 convertible.
Oil drain plugs are a picky business. If the threads are perfect mated to the oil pan, either from wear or mis-machining (which can happen on aftermarket drain plugs), you could be looking at a costly oil pan repair or replacement. To be 100% sure of a perfect fit and seal -- and that you don't have a dangerous oil leak -- you can order this authentic Genuine BMW oil drain plug for your S54, S65, or S85 engine. A few dollars is a low price to pay for this peace of mind. This plug is sold individually, and on some cars you will find two plugs. (Be sure to order enough if you need two.)Need a new seal ring with this?
