    Cone filters sound too chavy, a surprise at how loud they are so if you want to sound like a young boy racer c*ck then go for the cone, apparently the panel is "better" for the car although i cant imagine theres much difference, im no expert so may be wrong there, like said before its totally down to choice.

    Ps...... I have a cone and i fu**ing love it ha ha "chav" lol although i can see why people do take them out after a while,

    Sweet, a lot of varying opinions, and cabbage bay looks sweet buddy.

    Think in gunna head for a panel filter to start with, just while I've got my warrantee, but when I break the warrantee ill do something sexy with the intake...

    Lol, you'll have stopped your warranty as soon as the filter goes in.

    I seen this in a review where put car on the RR. You lose power from a cone filter because is sucking heat from the engine. Where the panel suck cooler air from the outside. Cooler air = dense air = more bang!

    Doesn't really work, as the air goes through the intercooler first before going to the turbo

    Still going to be colder entering the inter-cooler, therefor going still be cooler even cooler come out than if it was coming from an cone. But the end of the day if want awesome noise go for cone or do you want more power go for the panel.

    Got this guy tested the temps theirs quite a big difference in temp.
