E46 aFe Performance Air Filters

E46 aFe Performance Air Filters Advanced Flow Engineering (aFe) makes these high performance, high flow OE air filters which replace the restrictive factory paper filter and lets your engine breathe better. These are stock replacement filters that drop in to your BMW's factory airbox system, and will increase flow to the engine, yielding more horsepower and torque.

Paper filters do a good job in keeping dirt out but can clogged easily so that it needs to be replaced frequently. aFe's performance filters are made with a washable/reusable cotton gauze which allows more airflow. aFe's filters feature a pliable progressive polyurethane seal, the deepest pleats in the industry, minimal wicking, and are factory pre-oiled with non-surfactant containing refined oil. Made in California, USA

E85 Z4 : Z4 2.5i Z4 3.0i M54 engine 2004-2006

This version has an oil-free filter media for less maintenance. For the best flowing filter, with the best performance gain, we always recommend the standard aFe "Pro5R " filter (which has a blue pre-oiled filter media), but this oil-free filter flows only slightly less than the blue Pro5R style aFe filter, and requires no re-oiling after cleaning the filter.

E85 Z4 : Z4 2.5i Z4 3.0i M54 engine 2004-2006

This version uses aFe's highest flowing filter media, which uses a lightly oil gauze to filter out dirt and particulates, while allowing more air to flow to the intake. For the best flowing filter, with the best performance gain, we always recommend this standard aFe filter media (often called "Pro5R ", which has a blue pre-oiled filter media). We also carry this filter in the "ProDry" grey filter media, which is oil-free for only slightly less performance and no maintenance.
