Advice about Oil Filter

I recently purchased a hard back Bentley Manual for my E90 at a good price and the person through in two filters, a set of wipers, and an oil cap wrench. my question is that the filters he gave me are a brand called MAHLE. Does anyone know about this brand of filter? should i just stick with OEM BMW filters or are these good also. i have inlcuded pics. any advice wil be appreciated. thanks.

Very good automotive supplier and engineering firm. As long as the part fits your car, you should have no issues. They have a large presence in engine products and engineering/testing.

those who gets an indy show to do their oil changing service..
do you buy the filter and oil before hand?

where do you guys purchase the filter? cheaper online or use BMW dealership? or just let the indyshop do everything.
