I got mine at Autozone, a lot cheaper than the dealership.

pelicanparts? I am not sure about using Autozone or other parts store fuel filters... those are kinda important for your car.

dont waste that money on the dealership the install only took ten minutes it is really easy, just drive your car till your rediculously low on gas then let it cool, put the front on stands,if you car is the early e36's the filter should be on the bottom behind the left wheel but under where your feet sit, under the car off course,remove the the allen bolt and the filter will now be able to move, disconnect the bottom clamp and put the little cap of the new filter on the old filter to stop excess leaking then put the bottom hose on the new filter then remove the top clamp on old filter, remove it, then put the top hose on the new filter then bolt the bracket back into place

remember dont smoke while doing this just buy the filter from autozone as long as it is a fram or mahle

no diff between the autozone one and the dealerships. I actually bought one from the dealership and on the way home thought to stop by autozone and see if they had one and for how much. They not only looked exactly the same but the autozone one was, I think, around $15 less. And definitely do it yourself, its one of the easier DIYs, a little messy, but real easy.
