    im looking at panel filters for the 3.2, seen a pipercross one and a k&n, but it seems people are divided on the best one to use as the pipercross has to be oild. which is most suitable for the 3.2 and will it sound any different to the standard one? :readit:

    I have a K&N panel filter in mine at the mo...no gains performance wise and only a tiny tiny differance noise wise, I got mine as a gift other than that I think I would have just stuck to the standard one and changed it more reg" than recommended-been in for almost a year and hasnt caused any problems so would possible recomend that over the pipercross one:icon_thumright:

    I have one, bought it from GTi International last year. As Wes says no noticeable difference maybe a little more noise but I wouldn't guarantee it. The main thing is it lasts longer. I can't for the life of me remember what make it is!.......... but I think it's blue.:think:
