    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    I bought myself an open air filter for my 316i E30 Saloon, engine M40. But my car won't start after I put the new filter in. Does this have something to do with the airflow meter? What do I have to do to make the car start with the open filter? Anyone? :)
