    You're better off getting a panel filter rather than a induction kit unless you shield the filter on the induction kit, otherwise it just pulls the hot air in from the engine bay.

    What difference does a standard panel air filter have compared to an aftermarket panel air filter like K&N? Thanks

    Power difference is naff all, but it will filter the air much better and last longer.

    Apparently BMW oem filters outperformed aftermarket filters so rather stick with OEM
