The Active Autowerke BMW E9x M3 Performance Air filter was engineered and designed to effectively increase your BMW M3's horsepower while maintaining OEM like fit and quality. The Active Autowerke M3 'Green' Filter features a special reinforced side wall to guarantee perfect fit and no failure like many other aftermarket filters with thin walls. Not only will this system help increase air flow to your engine, but it will also help with your gas mileage. This S65 BMW M3 Performance air filter is a must for the enthusiast looking to get the most out of their E9X BMW M3. This filter is available for both US Spec and Euro Spec M3's from 2008-2012. This filter is a reusable and can be cleaned with our filter cleaning kit, meaning this will be your last filter.


     Green High Performance Air Filters are uniquely designed to take full advantage of cottons capabilities.

     Unlike multi-layer gauze filters which can fray and release fiber particles into your engine, The Active Autowerke BMW M3 Filter uses two layers of tightly-interwoven cotton fabric. The 3 main benefits to woven cotton are the fact its thinner, holds oil better, and is stronger. Since its thinner, it allows better air flow without sacrificing filtration. The cotton holds the oil more evenly, and the medium is much stronger. Unlike gauze, you cannot wear a hole in woven cotton by rubbing it, and there is no way small bits of cotton can rip off since its interlocked with another piece.

     Direct OEM like fit with superior quality

     These filters are coated in steel mesh for extra strength and durability, because of this, Green filters are much more dent resistant.

    These USA filters offer fully seam welded, powder coated, laser cut steel housing with pre-assembled rubber seals on our intake housings.

Another key element in the launching of this underdrive pulley system was the task of manufacturing a DPK, a double side belt for the air conditioner. Whenever you alter the crankshaft main pulley size, it will also influence the size of the A/C belt.  As of late production 2007, BMW change over the belt configuration to a double sided groove belt on the E9X M3. Active Auotwerke philisophy is always to try and maintain components like a BMW fashion, as if BMW would have done. This would be a first in the BMW performance industy to have an aftermarket DPK belt produced.

This performance upgrade is easy to install and can be fully reversible if the need arises.  It is packaged to be simpe and all inclusive. Please verify your E9x M3 on the A/C belt if single sided or double sided (DPK) when ordering.

Looking to create some bolt-on horsepower at an affordable price.  The Active Autowerke Test Pipe will do this and a lot more. Relatively easy to install if you know how to use a tape measure and a axe-saw makes installing the Test Pipe a cool week-end project.

Made of 100% Brushed stainless steel it bolts right up to the factory exhaust headers and provides a tight seal with the new set of TORCA clamps that are also included with the Test Pipe kit.


The Test Pipes features a ** Z STYLE ** expansion slot at the rear of the Test Pipe to provide that tight exhaust gas seal with the help of the European designed TORCA style clamps. These clamps are strong and robust with the beefiest in band width, a 14 mm shank bolt to provide the highest degree of load when tightened.

An additional support brace is also provided (just like the factory) to relieve the load and stress if installed.

The gains in horsepower is achieved through the free flowing design of the Test Pipes and the replacing of the factory primary catalytic converters by removing the restrictions of the OEM cats. They will turn on the check engine light. With guaranteed HP gains this application is a must for the track user .


NOTE: this is for off road use only and is designated for RACING Purposes ONLY and not intended to be installed or used on public highways.

Like every Active Autowerke product you can expect only the best in fit, finish and performance.
