I wouldn't bother mate, save your penny's.. I've heard many stories about these performance panel filters and you may get a slight power increase but if your not thinking of re-mapping your ECU to suit you may end up with a fuel sapping engine but with only a little power increase.. Any changes to the flow of induction and/or exhaust will mean the ECU will have to be re-mapped accordingly so don't think it's worth it for a panel filter mate... :)

Hi the main thing with the KN filter is you can remove clean re oil and put back so in the long term will save you some cash it will not make you use more fuel as the turbo will only take what air flow it needs controlled by the ECU and the mass air pressure sensor controlling what boost it requires from the turbo, look on eBay you can get the KN a lot cheaper I picked one up for fifteen pounds a couple of months ago and you can get a bottle of the oil for a couple of pounds too.
