BMC filter or K&N

Hi all, I appreciate your time to give me advise.

I am recently going to replace my air filter for my F10 528, can anyone told me what's different between BMC & K&N? I mean beside the price.

Stick with stock filter. Your 528 isn't going to give you anything except placebo effects and more engine wear with those filters.

The only time where I see the limit of the stock intake is when we increase boost significantly in the 535 or 550.

People who are looking for cheap mods and a K&N decal on their window.
