aftermarket air filter problem in my V6

This may be an interesting one and i'd be interested to know if anyone has had a similar problem.

i recently purchased a BMC replacement filter for my 2.5 V6. The car was running fine before, but having just bought it i thought it would be a good idea to change plugs, filter, and an aftermarket one seemed like a good idea.

Put the filter in, drove to work, after 5 miles the engine management light lit up on the dash. Hmmm. Drove the car a bit more, realised quite a bit of low rev torque had been lost. Couple of days later i put the standard filter back in and the light went out and the car is running perfectly again.

i understand that the oil in the filter may well be the problem, but why the hell are they selling these if they're so unsuited to the car?

Anyone else had a similar experience?
