BMC Air Filter Golf 5 GTi | FB409/01


The BMC Air Filter FB409/01 was manufactured developed and, in order to guarantee a higher air passage opposite the conventional paper filter one Volkswagen Golf V / Golf Plus (1k1, 1k5, Aj5, 5m1, 521) 2.0 TFSI GTI.

By the replacement of the paper filter with a BMC Air Filter FB409/01, with which the same technologies and materials of the formula 1 – Filter are used, clear advantages result to series vehicle also at Volkswagen.

The panel 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).

BMC 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.

BMC filters 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.
