Yes, unless this has changed within the last 2-3 months.

Stock filters do not suffer from this since they utilize a CNC plastic cap, the freeer flowing Macht Schnell & BMC units have a harder density rubber which are not effected from the pin pressure.

If I get a BMC filter for my 2011 M3 coupe, will I need the adapter as well?

Unless you get the EU version of the BMC. We have the MS units here, and offer free installation for the locals.
