    Yep, got one on mine, wont hurt having it on, no real power gains.
    You can here the wastegate on the turbo fluttering, which sounds quite good.
    The BMC filter can be cleaned, so you will never need to change it.
    A good upgrade really, unless you change to a full induction kit.

    I've put an ITG panel filter on my A500, was recommended to use one instead of the BMC.  It doesn't really give any extra performance, and only adds a tiny amount of induction growl, but it's not a paper filter so should last a lot longer before clogging up.  :thumb:

    Plus I use them on my rally cars so have some kind of brand allegiance..  :whistle:

    I bought it when I had my car remapped at Angel, & had it sent directly from ITG.

    An air filter won't give you any more noticeable power, you have to remap/ fit a tuning box/ bigger turbo/ change engine internals for that

    Tmc box is a good investment, you should see 200bhp.
