Poor air flow in cabin

(1995 BMW 540i)
in Newtown, CT on June 09, 2010
My ac/heat seems to work okay and I can hear the fan running but the air flow is very poor. I think the cabin air filter needs replacing but it is not where I expected to find it based upon info I have read on the web (ie two filters on either side of the engine) Where might they be ??

THE E34 MOST common problem!!
Cabin filter clogged.
Remarkable improvement if you can put up with fitting a new one-that is why it has never been changed and will be completely blocked!!!
