BMW M57 diesel replacement air filter

Designed to replace the stock air filter on your BMW diesel using the original air box

The BMW M57 is a inline-six diesel engine produced from 1998 – 2010 and installed in a variety of sedans and SUVs. Highly regarded at the time for its performance and quiet operation, M57 won the 2.5–3.0 L category of the International Engine of the Year competition for 1999 through 2002, and again in 2009. The reduced-displacement version won the same award in 2005 and 2006.

The M57 diesel engine was developed from BMW's smaller 2.0-liter inline four cylinder diesel. The two engines share the same cylinder bore spacing and other dimensions, for manufacturing efficiency, making the M57, in essence, a M47 with two extra cylinders. Both engines are built on aluminum engine blocks, which resulted in an 11 pound weight reduction over the previous iron-block 3.0 L inline six-cylinder BMW diesel.

K&N Air Filter Cleaner

K&N’s Air Filter Cleaning Kit makes renewing your filter a snap

The most common applications for the M57 diesel engine are 3-Series, 5-Series, and 7-Series BMW sedans, 3-Series BMW station wagons, X3, X5, and X6 Crossovers From 2002 through 2006 it was also the diesel engine option for the Land Rover Range Rover. The least powerful of the M57 engines was the 2.5 L version installed in the 2000 – 2003 BMW 525d. The most powerful 3.0 L developed 282 hp and was installed in the 535d, 635d, X5 3.0sd, X6 xDrive35d, X3 3.0sd and the 335d.

Whether you’re driving a BMW M57 diesel that produces 164 hp or the version that develops 282 hp, The K&N E-2657 replacement air filter can add horsepower and acceleration to your BMW by providing an increase of up to 50% more airflow to the engine. Increased airflow can result in a more responsive throttle and improved torque at all points in the engine operating range.

The reason is that K&N air filters are manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media. This type of construction not only allows for increased airflow, but at the same time offers excellent filtration characteristics to ensure long engine life. Often, OEM and less-expensive filters are made from more restrictive paper. Each K&N air filter design is verified through K&N’s in-house air filter filtration efficiency testing lab, which adheres to ISO 5011 protocols, which ensures that K&N filters provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection.

Once you’ve installed your K&N filter, you’ve eliminated the need to purchase and replace paper filters for the life of the vehicle. The only maintenance is a service you can do yourself at intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions). By using the K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit, you can easily clean and re-oil your air filter -- returning it to like-new condition and for another 50,000 miles of driving. Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.

You can order the filter simply by clicking on the part number E-2657 as well as order the Air Filter Cleaning Kit 99-5050.
