E84 engine air filter replacement
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi there, I recently got myself a X1 2012 and I wanted to replace its engine air filter however, I am not able to locate it based on the first glance. Before i start to open up things just wanted to check with you guys if the mark section is where the engine air filter is located for a 2012 x1? And if you recommend OEM filter or any brand in particular?

Thanks!

That's the spot!

I usually order a Mahle off of Amazon.

Right spot, but that cover looks slightly different than my 2014 28i Xdrive. I use RockAuto.com. I remember getting a Mann filter last time.

Yes.

Yea, it's clips around it but you'll likely want to undo the bolts of the part that holds it to the chassis so you can manipulate it to get the housing/shroud apart. Good time to check to see if there's any debris in there - I shop-vac'd mine out and wiped with damp paper towel before reassembly.
