With a small discount from the dealer I can purchase the OE filters cheaper than the K&N retail price. Stay OE or maybe HiFlo, that's my opinion and I'm sure there will be many others shortly.

So do I on the other 4 bike at a third of the price of genuine but any chance I have of BM being nice to me in the next 12 months if I rock up with non OE will quickly disappear.

I am sure you guys over the pond can buy the Mahle filters. They are the OEM supplier for BMW filters. Much cheaper.

I bought a bike-time supply of Mahle (OEM) air filters and oil filters from Rock Auto. Great prices :)
