Well on page 6 of the Owners Manuel it says "Only Use OEM cabin filter... Not Ebay POS. If Ebay POS is used MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) Will illuminate" Iím Not making this up page 6, Right next to how to add blinker fluid and tune your Fuel Injected turbo Charged brake lines oh and how to get unicorns out of your throttle body ...... Tell you what, I go to a tech school as I am on my way to becoming a BMW tech. I will ask one of the BMW teachers if this is at possible. If he thinks it is I will buy you 1 cookie of your choice. If in fact it is BS then you must supply Cookies for all.

GREAT NEWS GUYS!

I just drove from Cincinnati to Madison, WI at 75MPH without a cabin filter in place in my 2000 323iT and got 35MPG! OMG! The cabin filter chokes your engine! TAKE IT OUT IMMEDIATELY! FREE HORSEPOWER AND ECONOMY!

Never did get a CEL......

And I'm not kidding about the mpg. But I am kidding about the filter being the cause (I had to put that in there-someone already PM'ed me telling me I was an idiot....)

Dear OEMguy: you are wrong. But you already knew that!
