Any K&N OEM Filter for the E90 330 yet?

Does anyone know whether a K&N OEM replacement filter exists for the E90?

I don't think so. If you register your email with K & N, they can notify you when the filter is available.

Just a note, European cars have a very different filter from USA cars

The European filter is a cylinder shape filter instead of the flat panel type like the USA cars have


Also watch for over oiling the K&N filters. I have had to help at least 5 people with BMW's this year where overoiling has caused the airflowmeter to go bad and need replacing ( its $$$$ )

Good point re: over oiling K & N filter elements! Even if the element is oiled per K & N instructions there is a very real risk of residue coating the MAF sensor and rendering it inoperable. I like the stock treated paper filters.
