Do they really make any difference? Some people say they do and others don't? :s

My car is definetly more responsive, but that could just be because its got a fresh clean filter in there.

Not done enough miles to notice any mpg difference though.

The way I looked at it, is that being washable it pays for itself in the life of two standard filters and any benefit I get however small is a bonus.

I have found a pipercross panel filter for my 1.6 tdci for 35 quid, a standard is 12 quid, now pipercross say it will increase my mpg ( but won't say by how much) n apparently will add between 2-5 bhp? Now is it really with paying 3 times the amount

The mpg boost will probably only be a very slight one

I wish, haha.

I think it just helped knowing that the K&N warranty is valid in the UK.

At last I've done something before Nath. Fitted mine on Thursday done about 50miles the engine sounds so much smoother but there is no real difference in mpg or performance so far as I can tell. Also you get a nice exhaust note when you rev it up other than that not much difference

Needs the silicone hose as well, note the inlet pipe on the standard kit is baffled. Get yourself a smooth sili pipe :)
