Zippy: *You have a point there about the "What if" paint coming off, It would make sense but ** Has anything ever come to light about the paint ever coming off a filter inside an LT & doing any harm to any engine at any time ever attributed to that?
I just looked at my NIB OEM filter and while the whole of the filter is not painted, *It does have what I assume is paint writing all over the outside marking the BMW icon and several lines of white letters and numbers...
So, Some paint is ok then? I have neve seen the Bosch filter and assume it has coloring of some type on it?
