BMC replacement air filters are designed and produced to ensure a higher air flow than original paper filters. In F1 racing, BMC cotton filters minimize the loss of air flow pressure passing through the air filter, ensuring the best conditions for maximum combustion and maximum power.
It’s no wonder that BMC air filters are used in the Audi R8 LMP900 with multiple wins at the American Le Mans Series, and the Audi R8 and R10 TDI at the 24hrs of Le Mans.
The benefits of replacing the original paper filter in your Audi, BMW, Mercedes or Volkswagen with a BMC OE-replacement cotton air filter, produced using the same technology and materials as the F1 air filters, are evident.
BMC Filter Design and Materials
Qualified engineers using advanced software and expert technicians using the latest technologies produce BMC air filters. An F1 filter must be very light, must be made of the best materials and must improve performance. For this reason BMC only uses only alloy mesh with epoxy coating to ensure protection from petrol fumes and from oxidization due to the humidity of the air. The filtering material is composed of a special cotton gauze soaked with low-viscosity oil to give you the best air permeability.
Advanced Intake Technology
BMC technical staff has developed a particular production system based on soft rubber moulding which produces the familiar BMC red filters. They are made in one single piece with no welded joints in the corners, thus avoiding breaking risks. This system, called “Full Moulding” comes from R&D in F1 racing, and is an indication of BMC’s technical advancement and top-notch quality.
Best of all, the high quality and extreme durability of these BMC replacement air filters mean they can last well over 100,000km, and will save you the costs of frequent OEM air filter changes!
