    Hey all, just a quick question, I have had a itg panel filter on my car for about 6 months, noticed that the filter is quite oily, has any of you ppl had problems with the oil effecting the MAF sensor? Is it worth keeping it on the car?

    Thanks James

    Hi James

    I moved this to the tuning forum for you

    I would say that these panel filters all have this problem!! But they do come pre oiled........ so be sure it wasnt like that to start with!!

    K and N are the same, they let much more sh*te through than a stock BMW one and BMW ones have been tested against all the competition and came out on top!! (think £££££ R and D budget)

    The sound of an induction kit is lovely though a filter IMHO is a bit pointless...

    It will get more junk on the MAF than a stock one BUT you can buy a spray can of IPA (iso propyl alcohol) and remove the maf and clean the element with the spray.

    let it evaporate and your good to go
