15k oil changes, OEM. Less than 15k oil changes then anything you want.

Also, for most BMW problems start off by scanning your car with the Peake Research Tool. It contains the actual BMW codes.

.
I have both and YES they are both made by Mann -- but the Mann Filter has a metal cleat -- other than that they look identical. But there is a difference.
.
Order QTY of 10 from Tischer -- change N54 every 5k with cheapest LL01 U can find --- GC or M1 .
