E91 Microfilter needs replacing-quick Q

As above,my reminder that the microfilter needs replacing,has just popped up.
I'm not going to pay a stealer for a 10 minute job,but I will be replacing it with an oem part.
Has anyone changed their own and if so,do I need both of these parts (listed below) or just the microfilter?

Part Number:64 31 9142115 Microfilter/activated carbon container
Part Number:64 31 9142114 Microfilter

The BMW UK E bay site are charging 40.99 and this includes both parts-container and filter-from what I can see-all linked under one part number-ending 115.
BMMiniparts.com have split each part into two-114&115 with prices for each-28.01 and 20.75
If you need me to clarify the waffle,just ask!

As far am I am aware its one or the other -

you can buy the microfilter without the carbon activated bit

for a few quid more buy the microfilter with activated carbon - all it is that its coated with carbon to help get rid of nasty smells

unless its different on other models and there is a container?

That makes sense as others have mentioned paying extra for the carbon bit.
