    Fuel filter cost

    Just got a new fuel filter from the dealer. I figured I would get the BMW filter rather than an after marketeven though it might be a little more expensive. They charged me $35 with the discount (list $45). But now I went on the internet and keyed in the BMW filter numbers and many after market companies come up, ie Mahle, that use the identical stock number. The pictures all look identical to the BMW filter I got. The question is--it looks like one manufacture is making them all for after market and BMW. But the cost of the after market are in the range of $18 to $25 instead of the net cost of $35 I paid. Are all the filter identical --no need to go to BMW.

    Which car do you have with a filter that lists

    for only $45? I thought the list for my car is around $65 and that I got one for $40 I thought was great.

    List price on oem.com!

    And this is a typical price on eBay:

    Ah, I think I have it! You have an early e46 with

    a different fuel filter than that put on the '01 to '05 filters.
    The later ones have a pressure regulator built in, and yours perhaps has only a filter element?
