How are they compared to K&N?
Ive seen K&N for under $100. Anyone done a comparison with the 2 ?

Re: BMC air filter for ba xr8, how much ?

I understand from what I've read on the Forums that the BMC is the best but how long do they last?

It's a fair bit of dough for a filter, however if it's got a long life that changes the equation and makes it more attractive.

So whats the life span of a BMC filter guys? 6 months throw it away or are they a quite a long life item?


I said to the ICWS ( In Car Whingeing System )
