Anybody tried just fitting an aftermarket, upgrade type air filter? If so what were the results? Could you get something like a K&N or similar?

Any thoughts/experiences?
Thanks

Cool, thanks mate

I will check out the thread. I was thinking it is a relatively quick and easy mod for hopefully some gain T:

got mine today from tidytransporters , sound fella see you in a couple of weeks for my windows !
anyway , engine sounds beefier and you can hear the turbo whining alot more (just goto sort out my tapping noise now as that sounds alot louder too !)
as for the power i havnt realy noticed any difference to be honest , maybe 1 or 2 HP at most . looks nice in the engine bay too :ILU:

Fitted K & N replacement panel filter 2 years & 40000 miles ago,
Don't know if there is much improvement in power but saves on buying filters on a regular basis tho T:

Thanks everybody

I assume the K&N will just bolt straight on as a direct replacement - no modding req'd?
