Is it possible to replace an early single drain oil pan with the later two plug pan?

Thanks, I did search for “oil pan retrofit”. I read 4 pages of posts that had no information. I guess I should have read through all 480 “hits” to find where it was discussed.

I did it on mine and its a very wise thing to do, the most difficult part of doing it is sourcing the oil pan (unless you fancy stumping up over 1k to get one from BMW direct)

What is the benefit of the two sump plugs? when I change my oil ( single drain plug ) it drains very easily and the full or near full compliment of old oil drains out no issue.
