I have a BMC fiber cleanable air filter just removed from my 2029 Abarth. Liked it a lot over OEM paper filter. Just installed Eurocompulsion V4.Wix -$21
Both listed as OE for our 124s. Any recommendation as to which I should go with or other suggestions?
Appreciate the feedback and background you gave.Hi @Bob Polselli , First off, full disclosure, I have not compared a Wix filter to an OEM (Mopar) air filter. However, I would like to offer you some insight into what I have observed over the years - that OEM filters are generally of higher quality than aftermarket filters. So as a general rule I recommend OEM over aftermarket items. I have seen the difference whether you are comparing oil, engine air or cabin air filters, and there are differences between aftermarket brands, and some aftermarket items appear to be at least the equivalent of OEM - so it may be a crap shoot. History - years ago several of us techs were curious about the quality of oil filters we were using on GM cars ( being techs at a GM dealership). We cut in half - top to bottom - several filters including AC/Delco (OEM), Fram, Wix, Group 7, NAPA, and a couple of others. The AC/Delco was by far the best construction and filter material, Fram and Wix weren't bad, the others - well . . . you know. So, given my observations over the years, I go with OEM. That isn't to say the Wix filter won't work. Best, s
Thank you for the offer. Yesterday I ordered a MoparI have a BMC fiber cleanable air filter just removed from my 2029 Abarth. Liked it a lot over OEM paper filter. Just installed Eurocompulsion V4.
Would sell (very reasonable) and ship if you are interested.

I don't know about the air filter, but I used the Mopar oil filter in my Fiat 500 exclusively for a couple of years, then switched to Mann. A Mann filter was installed at the factory in my 500L, and I was really impressed with the filters construction when I did the first oil change.I consider MANN filters as one of the better aftermarket suppliers (as well as an OEM supplier to some manufacturers). My opinion. s.
