K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty® and Consumer Protection Pledge
K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty
K&N warrants its street vehicle OE Replacement Air Filters for one million miles. When used properly and found to be defective, return your filter and the receipt from purchase and K&N will replace it free of charge. K&N’s Consumer Protection Plan goes one step further than its Million Mile Warranty. The performance aftermarket has, at times, been plagued by car manufacturers and automotive dealers that may attempt to discourage you from customizing your vehicle. They prefer you buy OE parts and not modify your car or truck and have even been known to void their own manufacturer’s warranty due to vehicle modification. That sounds un-American to us, which is why K&N and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act protect consumers from such denied warranty claims. When you buy an OE replacement K&N High-Flow Air Filter or High-Flow Air Intake System you can be confident your vehicle’s warranty will remain in effect. If you experience a difficult dealership, K&N will resolve the issue so you won’t have to.

The following summarizes the K&N Consumer Protection Pledge:
K&N pledges to our customers that they will not be taken advantage of and charged for a repair due to a dealership warranty denial blamed on the presence of a K&N product.

We believe K&N makes The World's Best Air Filter and we stand behind that claim 100 percent.

K&N filters are a pretty useless upgrade, they dont flow any better than paper filters and the oil from them can **** your MAF

This.

The only car I ever used one in was my 1997 VW TD. No MAF or anything.

And honestly, depending on the conditions you drive in, you can go quite a ways on a paper filter if you aren't in overly dusty/sandy conditions. I've gone up to 60K km on one.

K&N filters a brilliant for a true cold air system on modified engines. I have never had issues with them for oil on the MAF in 14 years, but then again the trick is not to over spray them and clean the MAF when you clean the filter.

Not worth it on the 328 and for the same reason I dont have it on the E90 ///M3.

It's hard to believe with the resource and investment that K&N can out-engineer BMW. When in doubt stick with stock.

Always had issues with K&N filters in past. Always threw lean codes and once I went back to stock all was fine. Most japcrap boys do it for the sound

K&N Filters are great just don't re-oil it as you will either oil it too much or too little. Too much most of the time and damage your MAF sensor, which will cost you a lot to replace. BMW engineers are no fools, they make the intake manifold and intake diameter large enough to provide the right amount of air. You wont gain anything unless you reprogram you ECU. Sound is the only thing you gain really!

It is oiled the perfect amount.
