k&n drop in

i know, minor mod, did it myself.....took 5minutes. x1 35i m sport sounds throatier, accelerates a little better. het for 55 bucks it was a tasteful easy worthwhile mod.

When the BMW servicing expires, I will no doubt be getting one too. Love the 50k mile service interval.

I've disliked K&N since I killed 10 or so MAFs in my Contour using oiled filters. Nothing but dry filters for this guy.

On a side note, my aFe intake took me about 10 to install, most of that was opening packaging and looking for a dropped 10mm bit for my ratchet.

twix, the re oiling of the filter only requires a very light coating. easy on the oil after cleaning

I went easy, MAFs don't like the oil at all.
