    hi all, ive been looking to get a high flow panel filter,

    was considering k&n, pipercross and green filters,

    after some advice from numerous people on here i have decided to go for a pipercross, problem is i can only find them for the 320td and 325ti compacts, not the 316ti like ive got?!

    any ideas where i can get this from?? would the one for the 325ti fit mine??

    seems nobody knows for sure...why not drop pipercross themselves a line

    turns out pipercross dont do one for the 316ti or the 318ti because they have cylinderical filters not flat panel filters!

    ive gone for a green filter instead, very good and im well pleased with it!

    thanks for the info, need to do my filter soon so looking for some options!

    Is that a straight swap for the existing filter?
    Cheers!

    yeah its a straight swap! because our cars have cylinderical filter elements theres limited choice, from what i could find its literally either "green" or "k&n", and judging from what people have said k&n's are too oily so was an easy choice!! i'll let you know what its like if i ever get mine!!

    fitted my new green high flow filter today, nice easy job, only took about half an hour if that, and what a difference it makes!! really didnt think it'd make this much of a difference!

    the throttle response has been improved dramatically and torque at low revs now seems improved!! definitely £60 well spent!! has made my car a lot more pleasurable to drive!!

    would definitely recommend it for anyone with a 316ti or 318ti as we cant have pipercross filters!!!
