You should have a cabin filter. Usually the are located behind the center console.

it depends on the city u live , or the road u usually drive...

but anyways why dont you just clean it
when ur doin ur inspection II , its really important for ur AC , its like having a new one..
and when ur filter is way damaged , just buy a new one...
i used to do that on my previous E46...

Easiest to remove the glovebox and the panel below it. Its takes as little as 15min after youve done it a few times.

These filters should be replaced every 1-2 years.
