K&N Air Intake Filter Question

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/K-N-A...ht_2490wt_1167

Will that filter do anything to my 2010 BMW X6 50i?

I just got the car a couple of days ago, haven't modded anything yet. Will this do anything in terms of adding HP or helping with MPG?

Adding just a filter to the existing intake box won't gain you anything significant since you won't be removing any significant restriction from the intake system. However, if you remove the box and use a K&N (or other brand) open cone filter, then you'll be gaining hp & mpg. Even with that, it won't be more than 10 hp and 1 mpg. I'm not saying it's not worth it though. I'd be getting an intake kit right away if there was one available

With a K&N Air Filter you will get from 1 to 4 HP more, nothing significant, but can't beat it for 60 bucks.

The link to ebay is a listing for a K&N air filter for a X6 diesel engine only.
