I ordered a NAPA Gold filter for my BMW R1200C and picked it up today. The box says NAPA Gold but the filter looks some something else entirely. What do you think it is?

Probably a low-volume application that Wix didn't feel was worth making one themselves, so they reboxed someone else's.

I think that filter is a reboxed Mahle, being made in Austria. Mahle is probably OEM for that BMW motorcycle. It is a good filter that will give you no problems smile

The Wix for my Audi are re-boxed Manns. Normal for a lot of Euro applications.

Looks like a bare metal internal transmission filter.

Made in Austria = Mahle filter very probably.

+1 with low-volume application that Wix doesn't think worth making.

Using the Wix look up with pic for your BMW R1200C, what you got is the correct filter. As noted, a very low volume application, so just reboxed filter from in this case, the Austrian manufacturer. Mahle or Mann. No worries.

If it's Mann, it makes sense, because Mann bought Wix.

Mann or Mahle...either one is pretty good. (Isn't Mahle OE for the bike?) I'd use it.
