MS air filter

I have a MS air filter, do I have to take it out and clean it periodically?

Just my opinion but you should clean your filter once every 6 months, especially if you live in a dusty climate. The M3 air filter is more exposed to the elements than on most other cars. Open up your airbox and you'll see what I mean - you can reach up the lower air duct with your hand and practically touch the filter.

definitely clean the filter.
every 5-6k miles should do

you'll get the most out of your aftermarket filter from both performance and audible perspectives.
