Where's Your K&N Sticker?

I just recieved my K&N filter today. The install was a snap. I'm just curious as to what you guys do with your sticker. Personally, I'm not one of those that plaster my car with stickers everywhere. I like 'em clean looking. However, I think the K&N sticker would go well under the hood. My wife's Benz has a Mobil 1 sticker from the factory under the hood. Looks kinda nice. I found three good locations:
1) on the airbox at the front leading edge
2)on the intake snorkel right next to the square blue factory sticker
3)to the right of the black BMW synthetic oil sticker
Any thoughts.....thanks.

PS. Just recieved my SSTT two days ago and have not install yet. I'm definitely not putting that sticker under my hood. That's asking for trouble when going to the dealership. Maybe I'll give my SSTT stickers to my kid-neighbor to put on his modded Civic

Where it belongs, on the shelf at Pep Boys with the filter! LOL

I have one in my Nissan, but I really don't want to put one in the 335. I've taken the 335 filter out before, and it's unconventional. Since maintenance is free for 4 years, I personally wouldn't want to change from OEM. Actually, K&N falls into one of PT Barnum's categories, just not sure which (fool some all, fool all some, fool all all). I think maybe it's #2, because I got fooled on the Nissan but not BMW.

I'll put a sticker on my car when the company wants to rent the space at $10.00 a day

Just dropped my K&N in today. Threw the sticker in the garbage. I don't advertise for anybody unless they're paying me to. On a completely different note, what do you think of the K&N? Any noticable HP increase?

I just installed the K&N tonight. This weekend I'm dropping the SSTT in the car and will take it for a spin. Many on the forum have said the combo gives 50 whp!! Maybe the sticker will add another 5 hp , just joking.

Sweet I'm getting my Dinan tune this weekend. I was hoping the filter will help the engine breathe a bit more.

I can't be bothered with the hassle of a piggyback. Take it out, put it back, take it out, put it back.

NO THANK YOU
