    I've fitted the pipercross filter to mine, no real noticeable difference other than that you can hear the re-circ a little bit if you throttle quite hard and back off around 2.5k (engine note drowns it out above this)

    I guess the only real advantage is that it doesn't need replacing like the paper filters do

          any panel filter will be better than the standard one.

            Agreed..

            As our's are Green in colour it's easier to see dirt build up and therefore be able to clean the filter at an earlier stage which will optimise performance...

              There is no difference performance wise between standard and panel in my opinion. You're better off just replacing the standard filter every year as it protects the engine more.

                waste of money, this is of only real benefit if of a very very high state of tune, but for us mere mortols running 300 HP, will not see any real feel/gains on the road, never mind dyno,

                i think the OE paper filter is £4 on trade club , just change it over every couple of month

                  £4 every couple of months would become more costly than an aftermarket panel filter which will last a life time

                      Perhaps, it would depend on if you take into account accelerated engine wear brought on through inferior filtering.
