    Are you looking for direct replacement (most advisable) or Induction?

    If Induction then you need to ensure that heat from the engine bay can not be drawn up into the filter as this is detrimental to combustion in the chamber

    There are kits that come with a shield to prevent this and also with cold feed ducting so that only cold air is supplied to the filter

    Looks like it's the same as a 325 or 320's going by part numbers.

    also would it be worth telling the insurance company that you have changed it?

    I might be wrong, but I bet the insurance company would REALLY love you to tell them you had done it. Can almost see them rubbing their hands in anticipation of the extra money
