I hear K&N air filters don't do crap to your car, save a different noise at higher RPMs.
The filter for the 5-series is pretty swanky.

I have one of those installed in my car. It's hard to tell the difference if there is any improvements in horsepower or fuel ecomy. I only get about 13mpg around town, must be the way I drive. Anyway, as for any noises at higher RPM'S it's news to me.
I have heard some negative stories though. It seems like overtime the MAF valve could fail (plugged due to excess oily dirt). But then again, you only have to clean the valve to fix the problem. I have not expererience any of this for your information. Go to product reviews for additional information on this forum.
