    Hi,

    Has anyone tried the K&N airfilter on it's own, and if so have you noticed much differrence?

    Just a panel filter. Personally I have used them in the past and felt no difference at all, just a slight increase in noise. TBH the BMW filter flows very well anyway....

    K&N claim their filters flow better than the usual paper types, and this roughly results in a small increase of maybe 1 - 4 bhp. If that is indeed true, perhaps it would pay dividends in fuel consumption too.....don't know! Perhaps the main benefit would be that it's a one-off buy as the filters are washable and last the lifetime of the car?

    I'd recommend getting an ITG panel filter instead..

    No panel filter in this man's car. OP, BMW performance intake uses a K&N filter, but the box lid and intake is modified to make a difference.

    I prefer the pipercross as replacement filter
    I put the old paper one on the floor and placed a Hoover
    Over the top and it picked it up
    Trying the same with a pipercross foam filter,
    The Hoover couldn't grab it as too much air was flowing through
    Did notice a slight difference on the car and it made it sound more
    Grumbly
    When I put the paper one back in to part ex the car
    It sounded much less grufty and didn't quite pull as well

    Of course this could be psychological

    But I recommend that one anyway
