    Hi Folks

    so I'm sending the car for a service soon and was considering changing the standard air filter for an updated one. I've decided on a panel filter but which one,

    iv heard the K&N let's off oil onto the MAF so I'd like to avoid this - is the green panel filter any good?

    could I expect to notice anything different when I drive my car?

    Thanks all

    Don't waste your money, oem filters have shown to be just as good as aftermarket panel ones.
