And Yes, that is the exact reason why I needed your VIN, as we are all about making sure you get the correct part required. In fact as per BMW application restrictions, this Fuel Filter is only good for a 335d from 2009 to 2010 Year Model and "Through 01/2010" Production Year...
- So in other words; this is good for 05/2008 Up To 01/2010 Production Date.
Wierd. Well, my box has P/N 13327793672 on it. Do you have a P/N for the WK 5001? That link does show the 5001 as a replacement for the WK 519 and it shows three P/Ns, one of them is 13327793672, so I am pretty sure that the filters are interchangeable.
When I do a search for that P/N on Tischer it brings up a fuel filter, but it says that it cant confirm that it fits my car. And after inputing my year and model into Tischer, and I do a search under the fuel system on tischer, it doesnt show any fuel filter that I can find.
Doing a search for WK5001, I come up a lot with "Mann" WK5001, so I think that is the Mann code for the same fuel filter. It is confusing because they both use "WK" so it makes it seem like it is the same code system, but I think it is something like the Fram system which is different. I think a Mann WK5001 = a BMW WK519, but the Mann appears cheaper.
