Sorry, I mistakenly posted this in the E89 thread.:dunno:

I have searched everywhere but I am unable to find an answer to a seemingly easy question. I have a 2006 Z4 3.0si with sport package. I am simply looking for an oil filter. I went to change my filter with a Mann HU 925 4x but it was much longer than the existing filter. Everywhere I look it says I need this one. However, I did find a couple of sites that said the HU 816 X was the correct filter. It said Z4's with a heat exchanger needed the 816 and those without used the 925. How do I if I have a heat exchanger. I recently purchased this car so I don't feel comfortable just going by what is in it.

Thanks in advance,

Jerry

I remember having the same issue...tried to get a K&N, it was too large...I went to 2 diff shops, and got diff brands, and still too large... I took the one that was already in mine to the shop and got a diff year, 2005 I think, don't remember..just have to go with another car, take what you have and have them compare it..dunno why it was so hard...

no idea about the heat exchanger issue..

HU816X is the proper filter. I have the same motor.
