    K&N panel filter for 130 tdi?

    My 2003 A4 tdi 130 is due a service and I'm toying with the idea of paying a bit more for a K&N panel filter instead of a standard one. Anyone bothered with them, and is it really going to be worth the extra? My idea was that it doesn't cost a fortune, lasts the lifetime of the car, and helps it to breathe slightly more easily....
    Ideas? Cheers!

    I have one fitted - the old one was filthy so I guess any new filter was going to be an improvement!

    Have read loads of reviews testing one against the other and the K&N always seems to do well

    Personally, I'd go for a non oiled panel filter with the audi maf being so brittle.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    Blackquat, by non oiled panel filter, I assume you mean something like the k&n I mentioned in my first post? Whats this about the maf being fragile?
