Arrow DIY E90 Microfilter Replacement and Service Reset

Hey all, a lot of you were curious on how to replace the microfilter within your BMW along with reseting the service light. I made a quick video showing how to do so.

Tools Required:
8mm socket and driver.
A New Microfilter

I got my filter from Amazon from Mann Filter (same company BMW uses for their OEM filter)
Link for filter on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001DRHMMS

does anyone know if this is the same filter for the e90 and the e92 335i? i added them both to my cart with specifying the two different vehicles and it's showing up as just a quantity of 2, which i'm assuming means they are the same?

I'm almost positive the same microfilter is used regardless of e90/91/92/93. I would just call BMW parts in the morning and ask they will know off the top of their head. But the fact that it changes the quantity to 2 would be enough for me to just order it

Thanks. This popped up on an appointment that I had scheduled but cancelled, so now I know I can do it myself.
