Alex, I would strictly recommend you to buy original bmw filter which comes with all the O-rings. It only cost 10-15 pounds.
If you leave it to garage, they may get Aftermarket filter. The problem with aftermarket filters are fitment issue where O-rings may not fit properly and you may have issues of oil leaking from filter housing.
