i changed my panel filter today for a cheap WIX one for just under a tenner.

i've heard the k&n one makes the car seem slightly slightly more pulling. obviously nothing too much but a little more pully.

is this true and true enough to be worth 30 quid?

Ive got a BMC panel filter...much smoother ride than normal, and possibly more rev happy, but that could just be me thinking it is. Well worth it in my opinion.

yeah the wix seems abit smoother i know it's nothing on par with something like k&n but wix filters are highly spoken off over in the us so i think i'll leave the filter for now and consentrate on saving for a janspeed exhaust :D

yeah i've let it settle down a little and i can feel it abit more now.

i wasn't expecting a huge difference at all but i can feel it now it seems to keep rev's when changing gear alot more.
