Thinking of a BMC as it would be cheaper in the long run as BMW wants to replace their filter every 6k miles.

I've seen so many bad reviews from aftermarket filters that I've decided to just stick with stock. Call me dull and boring, but I don't need issues, rather be out riding.

If I lived in a desert then I probably wouldn't but I don't and I'll fit a K+N just like I have with my other bikes the exception being my 660 which has DNA.

If you're going to fit a more free-flowing exhaust as well, and have it remapped, then you might see a benefit. If not, don't bother.
