confusion on this air filter replacement video guide

I'm not a mechanic by trade so I'm much of a noob with these things. so advance apologies for the stupidity.

I found this video guide (see below) on how to supposedly change the air filter for a E53.

But the air filters replacement I've seen in ecstuning/other shops is rectangle in size. Not a tube like in the video (around 6:10 mark).

Can someone please enlighten me? thanks

That Diesel engine is an M57 compared to the M54 engine in the petrol (gasoline) powered 3.0 E53 chassis X5.
The filter is completely different for the engines.
You don't have specified what engine you have in your X5.
