No, there is one air filter and two cabin filters. Go to amazon.com and search bmw e60 air filter and bmw e60 cabin filter. They have good prices on Mann filters

Be careful, the cheap cabin filters are just paper replacements. The OEM ones are activated carbon ones that eliminate odor as well. You can get them at examining.com
Great service and prices

YES there is one cabin filter on each side of the firewall. Make sure you order 2 otherwise you will have to pay shipping on the one you forgot
BTW there is a connector for a sensor on the pass side. it is always suggested to remove the connector, but I have often broken those type of clips. I just rotated the cover forward and didnt have to disconnect.

Cabin air filter comes in two different variants, carbon activated and normal. Get the carbon activated as the normal as just useless. Carbon activated are expensive, but if you are US, the difference is not much compared to some other markets in the world.
