Anyone Using K&N?

Oil filter that is! I ordered 2 K&N online and it seems a little short compared to the MANN filter I initially installed. Wondering what filter you guys are using on yourE90's. Mine is 08 328XI.

I checked with K&N and they conformed the filter works with my year. Just seemd off.

Never used one in my BMW (use them in my T/A), but you should be using K&N Part Number PS-7014

Hope you got them for a good price - cause the BMW OEM filters are only 1/2 the normal price of K&N (and people bitch about the OEM cost )

I am using one for a year now and like it, I also did a charcoal delete and my car seems to like the better breathing with more air inlets. The sounds is better too.

His post refers to the OIL filter, not the air filter

+1 I also installed Cyba air scoops and it made a big difference.

I always just use the oem oil filter though.
