Their is no "Magnetic filter", their are two big magnets that attach to the pan itself but has nothing to do with the filter, if you look at the pic I posted you can clearly see them. BMW says the filter is lifetime "aka once the warranty is over, they could care less. Plus the Bentley repair manual states that, the fluid should be changed at 100,000.
