Bought one for mine a couple of months back and while I can't really say i've noticed

any more poke,the fuel economy seems to have crept up,even in this cold spell

You'd get maybe 0.5bhp, worth it though in the long run I suppose though, they don't need replacing, they do allow a nicer flow into the engine and they're not that expensive.

The after market panel filters basically have a thinner weave that allows more air in and a light film of oil to trap the smaller bit of crap in the air, they are defiantly worth replacing as they last the life of the car so are a great investment, with regards to performance and power, yes you will see improved economy and power but it is a very small increase, my best recommendation would be a piper cross filter as it is made of a foam material which is considered to be the best

Hope this answer your questions, if you want to know a bit more just let me know
