I have a replacement panel filter I'm not a big fan of induction as it can make the car sound abit much. Had this with a different car. A alta air induction it's popular you'll have to get it with the casing around it (heat shield)
And yes there is a difference with the 15.
Some say if you get a 17 it could over Heat the intercooler so with have to upgrade that too.
