    BMC Air Filter Noise

    Hi Guys and Gals!!

    Looking at the BMC CDA filter for the GSi - while we want maximum perfomance out of an air filter, we don't really want too much noise.

    Are the BMC Air filters really noisy or do they sound just OK?

    Help!

    looking at getting one from the local Demon Tweeks - for the Astra Gsi it's the 85 - 150 filter, priced at £175

    Just been to the money tree at the bottom of the jardin

    The BMC's make the best noise i've heard from an induction kit - it just sounds powerful - not boy/girl racer though.

    Its cool because you also get to hear a little more wastegate chatter coming though too -

    Clokem remember Regal on the 17/4 ? - he had his fitted then and along with Pete sounding off their engines - made me buy a DV!!

    But I distinctly remember the sound of Mikes car with that filter installed - AWESOME.

    It is on my list of upgrades - will be a nice addition to the carbon theme that is beginning to take shape under my bonnet!!
    Me run tings.... not tings run me!

    Cheers Brett,

    Rang Tweekies - they haven't got any in stock until Friday

    Have you been waiting long for your air filter off that website?
