I still don't get it, folks relocating the air filter, gas filter, sparkplugs, etc. to make maintenance easier.
BMW says to do a bunch of stuff every 12K miles. Once you have the plastic off to change the sparkplugs and check the valves, doing the air and gas filters is quick and easy.
Seriously, who sets out to change only the air filter? And if you do, why?
I submit that folks who do these modifications to make maintenance faster and easier will spend more time doing the modification than they'll ever spend changing the filters in their stock configuration.
Hey, lots of us like to tinker and make "improvements". So do the mods, have fun, but don't kid yourself that you're gonna improve performance or save time.
