    hi guys i really want to change my air filter but i am not sure what to do about the sensors which plug into the standard air box.
    i am looking at BMC CDA filters because i know that cold air induction kits are better, but looking at the ones which are apparently for my car online (318iS) they have nothing about the sensors. im pretty sure its an air flow sensor so i want to make sure its working properly in a new filter.
    also can i not have any suggestions from people about open filters because i know they are a waste of money and i wont even consider them :P
    if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

    the air flow (maf) sensor is what the filter attaches to...there might be an air temperature sensor to find a home for.
    some people leave them dangling,others drill a hole and silicone them in.
    cant say which is best cos i have never wanted to do away with my airbox (too old for the noise lol)
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    As Mark says it would only be the temp sensor you would need to find a place for-My kit came with a place to screw it in-You wont have to worry about the MAF as the kits connects onto it where the airbox is connected to it and you want to get a kit that comes with a heatshield or make one yourself as you'll feel a bit down on power because hot air isnt very good for combustion
