The OEM mirror is not designed to work with orange scented ones, I think that's your issue. Get the codes pulled to make sure though.

The cabin microfilter has no sensors or anything. but to make you look even more stupider I called the dealer and they said that you are an idiot. There is no possible way that the microfilter set off a CEL.

That's what the whole post was about, ebay crap, I can twist the air filter 360 degrees, chinese crap, didn't fit.

No, don't try to change the subject. You were very adamant that the microfilter caused a CEL on your car, lolol.

Well then me and my neighbor with the 00 323i are the only ones who seem to have the same problem with the microfilters.

I don't see a BMW dealer calling anyone an idiot, and also, many BMW dealers/techs are clueless. I called the dealer about the P1624 and do you know what they told me? I had to adjust my pedals...right...the P1624 is related to thermostats...the dealer doesn't know everything.

stop blaming it on chinese labor, fact is more than HALF the no name aftermarket stuff on ebay is all made by the same chinese labor force in which you speak of, unless you were an absolutely moron, it should have been more than obvious to you what you were buying going into it

you decided to buy a no name shotty product, knowing that the manufactured quality was questionable (no name product on EBAY), and when it doesnt fit properly you go crying about it?

save it man
