    Performance gains will be negligible from what I have read, but you will be able to wash the panel filter and if yours are getting that mucky in 2000 miles and your a 10k a year driver then I suppose its worth it then.

    its just looking at the face the fiber filter is dirt as hell and rest really clean thats putting me off keeping with the stand filter .... it looks like the fibers a block and i just think that this may slow air flow i have alos read some where that they is a air box mod that can be done to increase the amount of cold air as any one hurd of this ???

    Are you sure its an oem filter, the mod wont do squat imho, its still a box, it would need to be cylindrical to move air better imho with a direct through feed of air like say on a bmc cda of which I have, as it is, it has a feed that then does a left turn immediately from the grill, then a u-bend, then into a long rectangular box of which has a tube to maf at end, you can hollow out the box but wont help rest of its shortcomings & even with the dust collected it was proved on was it tdiclub forum cant recall totally, anyway they tested & showed oem was just as good or better than other panel filters.

    Performance wise, none of them will make a difference that you'd notice if at all, I still suggest oem in your situation.

    Also how is hollowing out the box going to help with colder air, it would need heatshielding for a start from the engine warmth to help any air travelling through to the turbo.

    Just buy a BMC CDA, job done, no filters needed to replace, just clean out once in a while, less confusion.
