740iL K&N

Hey all. I've been browsing through google for a while looking for a part number for a K&N filter. It will be used on a 1998 740iL in place of the factory filter. The problem is that I've come across multiple model numbers for various K&N filters, and I don't want to be inconvenienced by buying the wrong one Could any of you point me in the right direction? Thank you.

Just a note, if u do switch to a K&N filter be careful not to over oil it after cleaning as the oil can coat and kill the MAF

Thank you, Torque. I feel a bit rediculous now for not checking the obvious , but we all make mistakes, don't we? 325isBaby (and everyone else), I should have elaborated by saying that the filter is NOT for MY car, but for a close friend. I've installed, oiled, cleaned, and re-oiled multiple K&N filters on multiple applications, so I know not to make that mistake. Thank you, though
