I used to get my V8 filters from autozone.  $12.-  they are probably
made in china and they did have to order them, so I bought 2 :) when
I used the spare I ordered a new one.... always had one on hand...
the rubber was oozing out and had to be trimmed with a razor blade, 
otherwise they looked the same as the audi OEM...  I changed them
every 10k or so...

My .02 :)

Do you want to take a chance that the filter flows less air? How do you know what the flow characteristics of the material is compared to the Audi part? And the BMW engines are what - 3L and 3.5L sixes - why would BMW make a filter that flowed more air than needed, enough air for a 4.2L engine, and Audi wouldn't?
