If you have not noticed BMW has not offered a oil filmed air filter and there is good cause for it. Like I said my 2 american trucks seem to benifit from it including my old saab 900 turbo! But they dont have all the sensors and computer crap that these newer cars have. Just letting you know.
Hey search online for K&N air filter issues and you will notice MAF sensors ect damaged. K&N stands behind there product! But so did Chrysler back in the days. There are many brands of filters which do a better job and dont jack up your ride!
