After having a BMC filter, I don't think I could ever go back to K/N. They make great filters, but the BMC is Italian, and it just feels right :boink:.

I like how the new filter they are releasing looks to be the appropriate size to fit correctly. I currently have the one they previously offered and while it fits it doesn't fit with some encouraging words and a bit of skin off the fingers while trying to hold it in place and bring lid down on top of the air box. Also noticed that they almost copied the design BMC uses.

D-abarth,

that link says it fits the Abarth.

K&N offers free shipping from their website, and their price was already cheaper than Amazon.

Yeah, but it's so much more expensive that it's hard to justify. The performance can't really be different even if the fit and finish is.

I see the myth about the 'goodness' of K&N filters lives on. I would NEVER use an oiled-element filter on a modern FI car. Do some Google searches to find out why...
