    Hmm, a lot of people won't run oiled filters for risk of MAF sensor damage.

    From experience i have had even thought the greens are oiled people have never had issues with them or the ITG ones,just mainly k+n and thats only some cars might be that some people when they clean them apply too much oil,who knows but bit of a wierd one

    I have had my green panel filter in probably well over a year with no issues to date!

    For the sake of £30 from Green, there isnt much to lose!

    Diesels generally respond even better than petrols to a panel filter.

    I'm aware of plenty of people who have suffered MAF sensor failure after fitting any oiled filter. The fact that K&N still deny this is possible seems quite wrong! The construction of K&N, Green and any other cotton gauze air filter is very similar.

    Get a pre map rolling road done on your car to see what the car is actually putting out

    then get another with the filter to see if there is any difference and then do the same with the map on!
