Toronto M owners and air filter

I need to change my air filter. Dont feel like buying OEM for 150. Where did you guys purchase your non OEM air filter from? Got some shipping quotes for AA and MS, but shipping cost are crazy.

I know both these listed are sold, but he might be a good place to start with.

Buy a K&N. Find it on Amazon.com. $50 shipped to your door. Easily cleaned and will last a lifetime.

I got a AA Filter from Bimmersport in Mississauga for $100.

Cheaper than buying and shipping it from the U.S.

It's better than K&N.
