Mann Cabin Micro Filters

Changed all my cars filters today with Mann Micro Filters

DIY : $40 x 3 = $120 and 30 min work

If I go to BMW Dealer : $150 x 3 = $450

Here what they look like

1. at 10,000km



2. at 18,000km



see the difference between new and used

So do it when you can.... maybe every 10,000km

Here is the product... very cheap $40 per filter

Thats not dirt. Your original filters were activated charcoal, but your new ones are just plain paper. The charcoal filters are that colour when they are brand new.

The charcoal one is CUK8430. I'm not sure why you paid $40 when FCP euro sells the charcoal ones for $21 each.

Good product - Amazon has them for $22USD but if you shop around you might get a better price.

My problem is. Don't you have to reset warning light after replacement of the filter?

Might be a elapsed time or mileage minder but there are no sensors in the filter box. I don't remember seen anything pop up.
