The panel / cylindrical air filter is commonly referred to as
"replacement air filter". It is installed in the vehicle's original
airbox to replace the OEM air filter. It is made of highly performing
materials that allow an increased air flow combined with a more
efficient filtration, guaranteeing containment of all impurities from as
small as 7 microns (compared to OEM's 10 microns).

Test ran with oem airbox, and the related air flow constrictions.
This chart has a pure illustrative purpose and does not
refer to the present filter.
air filters are produced using a "Full Moulding" system that enables
the characteristic red filter to be realized from a single mould with no
welded joints thus avoiding easy breakage. The rubber used in BMC air
filtering systems has a long life, is very durable and has optimum
adhesion characteristics to all shapes of airboxes.
are made of a multi-layered cotton gauze soaked with low viscosity oil
covered with an epoxy coated alloy mesh to ensure protection from petrol
fumes and oxidization due to air humidity.
All BMC air filters are pre-oiled, and they can be washed and regenerated by using the appropriate BMC regeneration kit.
