Air filter options for 2.0i

Hi guys, just wondering what are my best options for an air filter change on my e91 2.0i?? Induction kit or panel filter replacement??

Thanks

I would not bother. Modern OEM induction systems have been shown to be as good if not better than many replacement panel filters etc. Any improvement is marginal (3-5 BHP) at best, and may be actually worse than OEM. They may look and sound better though.
