BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 K&N Air Filter

Hi all. Would swapping out the air filter in my 328i and putting the K&N lifetime filter make the car breathe easier and thus add extra HP Anyone have experience Im sure its not such a drastic difference that its noticeable. But if it saves fuel all the better.

engine and most of em do. However even a new engine has blow by and a little dust will make it down into the crankcase and mix with the oil. By their nature these are fine particles so the oil filter is unlikely to filter them. If youre flowing more air through less surface area the filter MUST let in more and bigger particles via bigger pores.

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Air filter change out

Hello I just got done having the Magna-flow Touring series installed from the cat back and sounds pretty good. Not to much noise in the car when driving which is nice. I would like to gain a few more HP and was wondering if it was worth it to change out the regular filter to a K&N air filter and would I really notice any difference I have read that by installing a CAI causes engine light to come on

The K&N looks like the same thickness to me so I dont think it will make much difference but would like your thoughts. Thank you Despite what K&N claims Im not sure you would notice any difference. Having said that I have a K&N in my 335 X3 and 99 Camaro SS. My thoughts are that in the long run its less expensive using a K&N type filter. Youll pay for the K&N in a few oil changes if you have bmw

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Air Filter on E39

Hello I have a 99 540i as you know those have 3 air filters that need to be replaced once a while. I called my local auto shop and they have the K&N filters for 40 some dollars a piece. Are the K&N filters better than the OEM bmw filters that is found at dealerships what about FRAM any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

filters filter those and other gases out of your cabin air. This is even more pronounced in stop and go traffic in sunken exways. If you always drive in pristine air and never behind buses and trucks on surface roads then you would be able to save the few dollars extra for none charcoal filters. Still the charcoal filters filter out other gases and pollen from the country side. People that buy bmws

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Streamline Engineering Air Filter

I thought Id share my thoughts on the Streamline Engineering drop-in air filter. Ive had it in my car now for a few weeks. I discovered it earlier this year read all the posts on various websites and looked over their testing results and charts. The filter is very well made. Theres a very informative post at Fanatics if youre interested in a comparison to the K&N... httpforum.e46fanatics.comshowthr...neengineering

from one of the posts by the inventor... Quote I have tested many filters and most can hold about 130 to 140 grams of dust including the standard paper filters. The worst filters that I have tested are the foam filters. You have to use way too much oil to make them work but more oil causes more restriction. You lose flow or capacity there is no happy medium with foam. The nice thing is our bmw

(oiled cotton gauze with a fine wire mesh cover). They are both lifetime filters in that you can wash and re-oil them. To the OP - wait until someone comes with a CAI. If you just replace your paper filter panel with a K&N (or similar) oiled cotton panel you can expect at the most a very small (undetectable really) increase in HP. Maybe. But at least this solution keeps the stock airbox and no bmw

You can decide to go with K&N if you like brands which have been around forever but in my opinion Green air filter is the best. It is also more expensive then most K& N filters. Check the details out here httpwww.greenfilterusa.com I looked at their products as you suggested and was discouraged by a few mistakes and vaporware I saw on their website. They say the protective metal mesh obtains a positive magnetic charge () which will attract the negative (-) dust particles. Thats totally wrong the metal screen will probably not acquire a magnetic charge if it does it wont be a single charge (i.e. magnetic monopole). If it acquires anything it may be an electric charge and that will be from the airdirt flowing through it. I am not sure though that the dust particles flowing through it will have the opposite electric charge. Anyhow its all BS. The filtration effect comes from the oiled cotton substrate. Same as any other similar filters. They also seem to think that their conical air filter contraption with vortex blades at the top will somehow improve the filtering process. That sounds and looks a lot like that turbonator or whatever they call the internet scam that claims to add HP to your engine by introducing an air swirler in your intake system. If anything it makes me not want to trust them. The only thing I saw on their website that may make a difference is their different construction layers - they use a 2 layer shirt-like weave vs. the typical multi-layer gauze of the competition. They claim their substrate is sturdier. If thats true maybe it doesnt flow as well - who knows Again I am not qualified to make this type of definitive statement. I mean they may be bona fide - but short of back-to-back dyno sessions or air flow measurements on a calibrated machine it may be impossible to tell. These other guys for example I didnt find any bogus claims on their website. httpwww.afefilter.com I saw a comparisonanalysis between their filters and K&Ns with some clear advantages of theirs over the K&N (more rounded pleat edge better rubber sealing etc.). I bought a filter from them I like it but could not honestly say that it flows any better or worse than a K&N or even the stock paper - if there are any power increases they are not registering on the butt-dyno. The thing is - whenever someone asks me about these things thats what I tell them. I simply do not believe that on a 300HP NA Nissan 350Z an air filter makes that big of a difference compared to either stock or K&N. I dont have your experience with the Nissan so I may be wrong there but I do have some with bmws and therefore cautioning the forum readers against some of the wilder claims.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Air filterCabin Air filter

How often should I change the engine as well as the cabin air filter. In our area there is not much dust and the AC runs usually about 9 months a year. Thanks M.

bmw recommends replacing the engine air filter every 30k miles. I believe the cabin filters is recommended 15k miles. I am sure there is a time element to the cabin filters since they have a charcoal component that absorbs odors and over time they are going to become saturated with contaminents regardless of milesuse (you can check the maintenance book for specifics). I change my cabin filters annually

Just pull them out and inspect. The cabin air filter bmw recommends to change once a year if Im not mistaken. The air filter should be changed pending on how dusty drives one has. Clean the airbox once the air filter is removed. You can pull out the air filter and eye ball it. Shake the dustdebris out of it and hold it against the light. If you dont see any light at the bends the filter is clogged

Who knows what happened. Id wager since youve done lots of DIYs on your car that the air filter really doesnt require assistance from anyone else.

Dont often get that kind of response. Here is a thought As you can see from filter performance curves the resistance of a filter goes up as it loads with dirt- hence over a lifetime your airflow is very good when new and drops until you finally replace it. My recommendation to people who are seeking the best airflow would be to just replace the air filter more often I do oil filters at 2x the bmw

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Best stock air box performance filter

Any recommendations for an aftermarket performance air filter for the stock air box (I6) Id prefer a dry type over the oil type (i.e. K&N) due to the MAF oil film issues.

I would tell anyone at this point to stay away from any oiled filter. The fact is that most oiled filters do let larger dirt particles through. And the oil will eventually screw up your MAF sensor. Although it wont happen overnight it will happen. In the past I used only K&N filter in my vehicles. Both vehicles I did have the filters on had the MAF sensor go out on them. Like I said it did not happen overnight but took about 60000 to 70000 miles on both. Its not just the Bimmers MAF sensors that it happens to its any vehicle that has both an oiled filter and MAF sensor. No matter how little you oil it air is passing through the filter. Over time those small oil particles come off as air passes through the filter and gets on that sensor. Cleaning the MAF sensor with electrical cleaner every 15000-20000 miles may help it from going out. But did not learn about that until after the fact so dont really know if it helps or not. I have finally got smarter with age. I now use only original paper filters again because nothing will filter better than paper to keep your engine clean. It does restrict air flow more but guess why. I have learned by different vehicles Ive owned over time that nothing will keep a vehicle running longer without problems than if you keep it all factory dont do any mods and drive easy (I know I will hear back for that comment I know its hard to drive a bmw easy but it can be done).

BMW SERIES 3 E46 Cabin Air Filter soaking wet

This afternoon I changed the Cabin air filter on my car with a brand new MANN filter. The old one was pretty dirty which is expected but it was also soaking wet... Is that to be expected It was raining today so that obviously has something to do with it. My drain ports were not clogged. I checked my Wifes 2004 X3 and her Cabin air filter was also wet. Anyone know if this is designed to be ok when wet

Didnt know Mann makes cabin air filter for bmw. Thought it was only oil filter. Without checking it in the rain I would logically think it is NOT normal that the cabin air filter gets wet in any way. It will stop air flow when wet. I remember it is under a plastic cover too. All cabin air filters on my other cars are inside the car often behind the glove box so they never get wet.
