AA Green Filter!!!!

I had AFE dry filter awhile back which was ok until it starting breaking apart from the top rubber section, was never to happy with the durability/fitment of it may be i got a bad one. So i starting using the OEM very restricted paper filter since my car was in and out of the dealership for warranty issue and maintenance.

Did some research and read a couple review of AA Green Filter and it seem like everyone loves it so i decided to pull place my order with AA since no one around my area had them in-stock. Had a great experience and smooth transaction with Robert w/AA, received the filter on Friday and had a chance to install it over the weekend. The fitment and filter feels and looks a lot more durable then my last setup, perfect and secure fitment with no rattling issue that people are getting from other filters on the market.

Not sure it if itís me but my car sounds alive now you can hear the difference, feels a lot more responsive and it can breathe a lot better than the OEM filter, very happy with the customer service i received and no regrets buying AA Green filter. Whoever is still debating on with filter to get you can't go wrong with AA filter!

I changed the existing one with new one and i would never even think of changing the air filter with any other brand name because of the quality and the durability.... i changed it after using it for like one and a half year

I just cleaned and reoiled mine, and I have an ever so slight whistle coming from the engine bay consistent with acceleration. Nothing anyone else would notice, but it's driving me crazy. I refitted the filter, but I'm still getting the whistle. I may just buy a new filter.

I don't mean to thread jack - I love this product.

Love the improved engine sound with the AA green. Almost has a baritone trumpet quality to it when you hit the throttle.

Is this worth picking up if my M only has 8k miles with the OEM filter?
