Does BMW performance intake use a different filter?
Do you need remove air filter box to replace filter like original one?
I've searched in forum but could not find answer.

Yes to both. It utilizes a "sport" filter which is basically a K&N type orange (and presumably oiled) filter.

Thanks for the answer.
I was hoping that the perfomance intake filter uses same as round European version which does not require to dissassemble whole filter box to replace filter.

No, it's a flat panel filter, same as stock. You'd have to convert to the Euro airbox and then buy the Euro Performance intake to get the "sport" cone filter.

Hmm, after reading this thread, I think the PI is my next mod!!

Currently got the BMW PE fitted, sprint booster fitted, and BMS PBX lying around to fit.

Will be interesting to see the real gains with all four items fitted...
