Just changed the Mahle KL66 fuel filter on my 1996 BMW 318ti. Here's the pictures of it cut open. Usage: • 52,138 miles • 4 years, 1 Month The filter housing measures 10.1" (255mm) Long and 2.2" (55mm) in Diameter. The filter media measures 57" (!!!) long streched by 9.25" wide. Yes, it's a BIG filter. Almost 50" long just laying. The two sides compared.

Both the Mahle and Mann versions are about $17 online. The replacement was a Mann from Amazon.com for just under $23 with shipping. My local dealer sell the exact same filter in a BMW box with a BMW stamp on the filter for $40.
