    basically guys de-restricted the airbox and now i am waiting on my new sump getting delivered and will be doing another service while i replace this, basically just wondering whether to buy a k&n or pipercross panel filter instead of the standard 1,

    best place to buy?? (ebay?)

    any1 recommend another good brand??

    any1 with an IS m44 put 1 in and noticed a difference??

    am not doing this expecting a massive bhp gain etc but just even if it makes it run smoother or more responsive low down etc!!

    cheers dudes!!

    I'm not sure what it's like with the 318IS, but I love the Pipercross filter in my 328i.

    I'd have a Pipercross over a K&N anyday !
