I was searching on Ebay for a K&N Air Filter kit and found this one : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...2479232898&rd=1
It says it's for use on the 318i 1.8L engine only.... I'm not sure if mine's a 1.9 L or if that's just a rumor. Even if mine's a 1.9 L, would it still be alright to use this air filter? Comments and suggestions on this? Thanks

It's probably a typo. Your engine is a 1.9L. You should still be able to use the air filter.

The e30 318 and 325 us e a square adapter to the MAF. The e36 325 moved to a round type, but the 1.8 kept the square. The OBDII 1.8 (really 1.9) uses the same round design as the 325.

I should've looked at the thing sooner. I figured it was just for a drop in filter.

Oh wow, good thing I didn't buy that one.... heh, thanks. what about the K&N Air filter part # 33 2733? It's square in the picture... I'm just confused about the square formatted filters and the cone ones. Could someone explain what I have/ need and to tell me if that filter with part # 33 2733 is right for me? I have a '96 318i. (I wonder why the '96 328's have the good looking bumpers/sideskirts while the '96 318 doesn't...hmm). Someone just point me to the right product for durability. I'll get a heat shield for it if it doesn't already come with one, unless it's not that big of a deal to get a shield.

Thanks for the help...

The cone ones are ussually a cold air or short ram intake. They take away the whole airbox and sit in it's place. The "drop in filter" just replaces the stock filter in the airbox.

The gains are basically the same to a cold air and a debaffled airbox, but you don't get the cool sound of the cold air intake with the airbox. Your call.

It's no type. The 1.8 L engine was pre 96, the switched to 1.9 thereafter.

That's what I'm saying. It's a '96 318, so it's a 1.9L. They switched to a 1.9 for the '96 model year, didn't they?
