Leading on from another thread where I have discovered my stock filter is black with dirt...

What are your opinions on Performance panel filters such as ITG/ K&N/Alta etc?

Trying to decide if its worth the £35-40 for the uprated one over the £7ish for a new stock paper one?

Can you actually notice any performance increase, any fuel economy increase or any noise increase to justify the extra £35??

tbf i guess a paper change every 8 k is going to similar to an upgrade,

aftermarket ones should be reusable and cleanble so it's a one off cost oposed to a regular £8 every 8k

i switched to panel filters on mine and didn't see a huge difference, there was a change with the jcw airbox though. but it is a one off fee with panel filters. there is a cleaning kit too that k&n do, i think it costs £10-15 for cleaning panel filters like that.
