E90 330i Best air filter for noise

Hi Guys,

Please advise, Im after sourcing a few servicing parts at the minute and need a new air filter, are there any replacement air panel filters , pipercross , k&n etc that I would hear an increase in induction noise from ?, or not . after reading a few previous threads I believe the stock one is good !, but I would upgrade if anyone on here has already done this and gets more noise when accelerating . Thanks

I drilled a few holes on the unfiltered underside of my airbox on an E46 330i I used to have years ago.


It worked though, sounded great but looked stock. If you can get a cheap airbox off eBay try it. No harm done if you don't like it.
