Question Cabin Air Filter

I want to replace the cabin air filter in my 2006 3.0i roadster but I have no idea where it is located. Suggestions on where I should look and how to get at it? Thanks.

There is a very good YouTube video on the location and how to DIY. Also you can buy a good replacement on EBay for 11-15$. The BMW stealership had the cabin filter for 38$! Go figure!

I have a 2003 Z4 and it's located behind the glove compartment. The Mann filters that I bought also have instructions. Was pretty easy to change. Good luck.

While it is not a difficult procedure, IMHO it shouldn't require undoing screws just to swap out cabin filters.
