Sounds good!

Just normal at standard revs, normal driving style but when you put your toe down a bit, towards 3000rpm it gives out a nice roar! Just a straight swap of the air filter, no pipes changed.

theres a reason why decent filters cost more they are tested and specific for the car these universal ones are extremely cheap made with poor filtration that lets particles through which isnt good for the engine and since they arent developed for the car most actually hamper performance if you want an intake buy from kandn they are developed and tested for the car

+1 i bought an air filter for the partners, nissan almera 1.5 petrol in hallfords and the car wasnt as fuel efficent,
as it was when it had the genuine Nissan filter in it, even the expected distance on a full tank of fuel was showing as much as 50km less per tank compared to the genuine filter, and neither of the filters were performance filters. and their was no difference in power

K&N cost a fair bit more but they can last unto 1,000,000 miles. Well its what they advertise. They let less crap through and will improve performance abit (I'm not mega sure on that)
Im gonna get one i think, maybe full induction kit but i believe its around £180 mark. Im unsure if just the rounded filter would just do.
Maybe someone can elaborate more.

the mpg on the k and n is b etter but like anything it will be worse than the standard airbox with a k and n panel filter when you give it some welly the only thing with the induction kit is you need to prevent heat soak so a cold air feed is a must as is a heat shield otherwise no matter what filter you use the engine will lose power due to the warm air being sucked in from the engine bay induction kits just make noise thats all
