OEM oil filter versus aftermarket ones
« on: November 01, 2018, 11:15:47 AM »
Looking for an alternative to buying oil filters from the stealership! Way overpriced. I Have used K&N products on my other bikes (not Beemers) Any thoughts ? Possible issues?
Thanks

I am not sure why it says that, the OEM number is the same, and they look and fit identically to the OEM filter I had on my S1000R and S1000XR.

Agreed the OEM filters are expensive, I think my BMW filter cost over $20 CAD last time I bought it, but tbh I'd rather spend a bit more for the filter (and the BMW Advantec oil, for that matter) and not have to worry about BMW messing about if I need warranty repairs to the motor. 

I know officially you can use any filter that matches the required standards, but is it worth the hassle over maybe $10 or $20 a year?

Pretty sure that Mahle makes the filters for BMW.

Mahle are original fitment on my 2015 purchased BMW oil filter as the Mahle one was 24 a lot more than the BMW one. I did find a Mahle air filter on eBay cheaper that the BMW one.

I was using K&N filters but stopped as there have been issues in the last couple years with K&N filters. The issue is that the filter blows off the motor caused by thread on the filter stripping clean off. This is not a rare occurrence and K&N even issued recalls on multiple models. It became such an issue that trackday organizations even banned the use of K&N filters.

I've only done 1 oil change but plan on using OEM filters. $18 USD is not a big enough of savings over $11 cheapest aftermarket filters. And I do about 15,000 miles a year. I can swallow $21/year more in oil filters (based on 3 oil changes a year)
