Lifetime replacement, send back your old one every oil change (after purchasing a new one) and they'll refund you the purchase price. This includes oil too!

Thanks!! I have a X5d so the engine air filter is BMW (13-71-8-518-111)

The Cabin Air Filter Set - BMW (64-31-6-804-939) instead?? Please correct me if I'm wrong?

Have to go with FCP Euro like most members are telling you... You buy it once at a slightly higher price and then just pay for return shipping every time after. I just did the M3's oil, power steering fluid, Cabin filter, Spark plugs, and oil change on my FJ with Liqui Moly. Sending back the package I'll spend 30ish dollars and get back a little under 300 for the parts I bought and return the used. It's a crazy system but it works and saves me tons of money for a person who likes to do preventative maintenance.

I buy from ECS, prefer to buy from an established company that has been in business for some amount of time over Ebay or Amazon where I can't really tell who I am buying from or what I am getting. Filters are simple to make "almost" OEM and I don't care if I spend a few extra dollars for less hassle and confidence in what I buy on what is my most expensive possession after my house.

Probably cheaper places but as long as I have a good experience I can't see a reason to go somewhere else.

Yup. I think they hedge their bet knowing the vast majority of people aren't going to actually replace the majority of those parts or fluids that have 30-50K lifespans, but it's good for knowing. Even stuff like wiper blades.

I just bought all my maintenance stuff from them. When I do decide to sell the car it'll be easy for me to flush everything for the new owner for a couple bugs and keep the maintenance fresh. If only they sold tires!

FCPEuro is that way to go, it's another + endorsement right here. Put some new B6 Bilstiens all around on my 330, wouldn't ya know, hit a pothole, bent the thing, no worries, no hassle replacement. I have done my oil there, but some family do and it's crazy, but for an upfront investment and shipping cost later, in the long run you do very well supporting their system!

FCPEuro all the way. No need to read seller ratings like you need to on ebay or amazon. Otherwise, I buy from my local dealership.

Don't waste your time with ECS Tuning. Anyone is better than ECS.

Absolutely the number one go to for maintenance items, I'm just kicking myself in the butt I didn't find them earlier. Been using them for going on 4 years now and could not be happier. The crazy thing for me is I've bought stuff like floor mats not thinking just buying them from FCP. That would have save me from the times I've had to replace them due to staining or wear and tear. Plus I like to track my car so I always feel a little better keeping the M's fluids fresh. Even the pesky plastic cooling pieces I've bought from FCP just incase the break like they always do lol. You're paying a little more for piece of mind is how I see it.

Hi fellows, I have just installed OEM parts on my X5 flawlessly. Do I pack the original parts and mail them back to FCPEuro for refund?

5-10 years ago ECS used to be great before they along with Turner, Pelican Parts, and other "independent" vendors were bought out by an investment firm.

I bought a bumper about a year ago (they sent completely the wrong one) and a fuel pump a few months ago (they sent an open box/used unit). Really poor experiences and total hassle to deal with returning and getting the correct items both times.

Getbmwparts.com has been my go to along with Schmiedmann. Both have AMAZING customer service, are super responsive, and always willing to go the extra mile. Unfortunately it's not cost effective to order from these 2 sources when all you need is a filter.

Iím currently boycotting FCP
Ordered a MAF sensor for over $270, came broken. I went to attach the connector to it and a piece of the bump where it secures to the locking tab broke apart.
They wouldnít honor credit when trying to return it. Said in roundabout way that I somehow broke it even though the box was crushed because they also put it under 11 liters of oil.

Offered to have me buy a new one, send the old one back for lifetime warranty or give me $170 or so back to my card. Wtf

I mainly buy from Brit at bmwpartpros. Iíve never had an issue but itís also convenient based on my circumstances
