Just realized this was a 2 year old post...

But BMW covers the replacements for the first 4 years or 40,000 miles.???

I get that you want to change your filter, and good for you it is after all your car - but don't make the argument that BMW cheaps out on air filters or that "Use it for life" saves you money.

(BTW - Agree with the post - if you don't know where its at - maybe you shouldn't change it yourself. Also be careful that when you take your car in for scheduled maintenance they don't check the air filter and ding you for non-oem)

Now can can anyone tell this guy where he can find the air filter?
