*size wise they are a direct fit in...
*they are a lil pricey but flow more air..
*only ever buy one for the life of the car as they can be recleaned and re used.....
*compared to the standard filter i think they are worth it.... :wink:

when u buy a decent km second hand, nice famous brand like k@n and you pay half the price.. then its way way worth it.. (1 million mile, 1.6million km warranty, which seems to me that it can go the distance, so you can reclean and reuse heaps of kms later on... thats what i think.

if u think a new k@n filter is a bit pricey, then try find another great brand that is within the quality of the k@n...or wait for a second hand filter.

I found a brand on ebay from a mob in brisbane. They claim same build quality as the k&n. I compared it 2 some1 elses k&n and they looked identical build. cheers click here

I recently did one in my AU, and there isn't much in it.

Slightly more induction noise
Slightly more throttle response
Slightly better economy

When I say slightly, I really do mean slightly!

I mainly did it because we plan to keep the car for at least a few years, and figured at least I'd never have to replace a filter again!

If there was a word between none and slight, putting on a Hi-flow filter would be that word. :D

Excuse the stupid question...but how do you lean the filters? Like can you use compressed air or is just water?. I think I saw like a cleaning kit somewhere once
