painted oil filter?

About to change oil on the 02 lt. First time since I bought it in January. Order filter FROM beemer boneyard, they sent a bosch filter... it is black... for some reason I was expecting no paint on it.. seems like I read on this forum that no paint was better...

Your thoughts....

I use the filters from Bemmer boneyard and they work fine, paint is not the problem its decals that some after market filters have stuck on them. They need to be removed before installation.

And the last time I had a Bosch filter from Beemer Boneyard the sticker had already been removed and stuck to the outside of the box. But check anyway.
