    Panel filters,

    Foam pipercross or k and n cotton gauze, which is better and flows better ?

    I currently have the pipercross foam filter with the snorkel and cold air feed thing removed from the box, not so sure on it though.

    any suggestions.

    This isnt a technical question so I moved it.
    It also has a title that would get it deleted by me in the tech forums.!

    IME the best filters are the OEM BMW ones.
    An induction kit on an M3 with a really good cold air feed can make a slight difference, until heat soak gets to it on a hot day.... but in the stock location BMW filters are the best in my opinion

    This man speaks sense

    If your really intent on spending money/increasing your mod list then any panel filter will do..
