I just bought my first bimmer last week, a 2008 328i (black/black, premium, sport). I worked on it for the first time yesterday and installed a matte black grille, and a K&N air filter. I'll post to another thread about my anguish with the grille, but the air filter replacement was surprisingly easy. I took my time, and stopped to snap a bunch of pics along the way, and it took just under 30 minutes. I'll post again with some detailed photos and instructions.
Take it from a newbie, as long as you're careful, you've got almost no reason to be nervous about changing the air filter yourself.
Thanks for the original post, WallyF. It helped a ton!
