Reset computer

Hi All ,

Can someone please help with a few questions i have for my 520d M-sport 06

1, If i fit a K&N air filter, will this trigger off the computer by opening the air box at all & will the computer reconise a K&N & not keep setting the computer off ?

2, My Micro filter needs changing, If i was to change it myself will the car have to go to a dealer to have the computer reset or is there something i can do myself ?

Many Thanks

Taffyboy07

I don't know about your model, I have a 97 528i, and I replaced it with the K&N,
and I have never had a problem!

You would likely need a reset tool to do that yourself.
