Intake filter

These are 1/2 off and are dry high air flow filters. Figured someone else would want one.

High flow and high filtration efficiency (abrasive dirt removal) are at opposite ends of the spectrum. Both don't come in the same filter.

True - I wasn't debating that.

@ this price point if it's a good filter ill just replace it every 10k miles or so.

It's about the same price as a Mann or Mahle OEM filter, just don't buy them from BMW for twice the price as Amazon. If the Mann and Mahle filters didn't do the job BMW wouldn't use them.

If the dirt goes thru, then there is not need to change it.

The high flow oil & cotton filters work great as long as they are clean - I don't plan to oil mine, just replace it.
