What is "locally"? You realize you're posting in the Ottawa subsection?

autopartsonlinecanada.com will usually have the filters to you next day.

If you really want it the same day, Duss Bros will sell you one.
I think its around $11 or $13, not sure.
Stil way cheaper than dealership ($20 something).

If you order from autopartsway.ca try to buy other stuff so you total before tax is $75, otherwise you'll have to pay about $10 for shipping.

+1 FOR THIS... I will never forget the day I started using this place and saving big bucks

I was just joking about the swizzles filters and welcome to ottawa !

Group buy!

Ok, not really but if someone else needs anything, we could bundle the order to save on the shipping...

Oh, and welcome!

I see you edited your location.. welcome!

Are you partial to Mann filters? I've always had good luck with Bosch. Partsource sell Bosch oil and air.

Thanks for the site, very useful for comparing prices and not to mention shipping is free after $75!

From my research, they seem to have the best price for air filters so I'm definitely going to be ordering air filters from them.

However, for oil filters and cabin air filter, I find bimmerspecialist to be a whole lot cheaper even with shipping.

To be honest, I haven't used Bosch filters. I've been only using MANN since they are the OEM for the filters.

Bosch make very good quality filters. And, they make pretty near everything else on the car. ;)

A filter is a filter to me.. I just did an oil change and used a Fram filter and royal purple.

*no-no* Do a little research online. Fram make some of the worst filters available. Thank heavens at least we don't need to worry about their cardboard anti drain back valves......

Royal Purple makes some good oil. Why splurge on that and go cheap on the filter?
