Mike, is the BMW performance filter a dry version of the K&N? That I would be keen for. Potentially a better filter without the agro of oiling the K&N and having the possible MAF issues that could go with that. Where does one get ones hands on one of those?

Thanks. I'm not looking to run an open filter. It gets pretty hot under the hood and air intake temp is more important for a NA engine vs. a turbocharged engine, so am looking to keep it as cool as possible hence working with the standard euro box.

Cheers all.
