Just wondering if they are worth the $70? DO people who have think that they make much of a difference in performance?

Thanks in advance.
Sam.

I'd buy one for $70.

But I prefer to replace the paper type for $15 a pop every 6 months.

definately get one. Looked after properly it will out live your car. You just need to get a $25 cleaning kit to renew the filter every 100,000 klm's or sooner if you live in a dusty/dirty environment. worth the money IMO.
