The Cold (insulated) CCV is just better protection against possible condensation. The CCV is a pain to change out, so I would definitely go for the extra protection in case you ever experience a few cold winters. My 2 cents.

I did mine and I have a friend that works at Fairfax BMW in VA and he said I can just use the regular. So I figured mine has lasted 10 years so I put the oem one back on. With you being in Texas I would just use the regular

Go for the regular version. My 325i was originally delivered in Florida, and came with the regular CCV. Save yourself $10 and the reported extra nuisance of installing the cold weather version.
