Waste of money. Potentially lets more dirt into your motor and contaminates the oil, leading to increase bearing wear.

Buy OE or OEM paper filers, change 2x the recommended frequency- you will therefore spend your entire life on the 'front half' of the filter loading/flow curve!

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells

If you want to save money, buy the original equipment manufacturer items without the BMW logo.
ie
Mann Filter CUK 2941-2 Cabin Air Filter
Mann-Filter C 28 125 Air Filter
MICRONAIR Cabin Air Filter for Recirculated Air

Double check that these fit the 35d

MANN C33001 air filter for 35d
MANN is OEM for 35d.
Rest of filters just get on AutohausAZ, ECSTuning, FCPEuro etc.
