That doesn't seem like all that great of a deal to me. I've had really good luck with, check the site and add up prices there, they also offer free shipping if the order is over $50. I also buy stuff from my dealer as well, with the CCA discount a lot of prices are not that much more than mail-order.
Regarding the K&N, I'm very leery of letting anything past the filter, and looking at the surface area of the stock Mahle filter, there is no way the K&N is anywhere close to it, therefore you are going to have to maintain the cleanliness of the element very often to make sure you're not passing crap through the filter.

OK, I'm going to start doing some of the routine maintenance on my M5 (just ordered my valve tool [BMW 3012 from Samstag]). So here's my question, where is everyone getting good deals on the parts for general maintenance? I noticed in the Roundel that Eurasian Auto Parts sells a kit which includes: Bosch Plugs; Mahle air, oil and fuel filters; factory valve cover gaskets; and needed seals for $108.95 (with K & N Air Filter. Has anyone utilized this kit? Does it, like K-Mart, suck? Any help, comments, alternative part sources would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!!
