Question Microfilter - OEM or pattern?

As title really, a genuine carbon filter is about 40 + postage. Pattern parts are about 25.

Worth paying the extra for a real one?

Decent pattern - Mahle, Motaquip or Bosch will be absolutely fine.

Wow. Euro Car Parts to the rescue again!

20ish for the carbon filter, 18 for the standard one.

25% off using the code on their front page, and free delivery too!

15 for a filter instead of 40+ from BMW. Excellent!

Now you can see how dealership workshops prop up the operation at a $tealer$hip. The money made can be mind-boggling.

Identical to the one I ordered from ECP - and a very suspiciously identical website too...

I assume the E90 just have one microfilter? Hopefully doesn't sound stupid but my X5 has two.
