Anyone have words of wisdom about modding the air filter? On my '99 E55 I ran K&N, but have seen other places where people are talking about a "GREEN" filter for '03 and newer.

K&N pro/con?
Green pro/con?

Other filters I should consider???

Thanks!

I don't like the green ones. They have had a numver of issues with the seal portion melting and droppin in. I use K&Ns.

Yah, I had the green filter in my car before and took it out and installed the K&N back into its place. It was all warped up. :wall:

I think EuroElites recommends the BMC filters. I use them on my Porche and Ducatis and they hold up long, clean well, and keep there shape.

If your car has a MAF sensor (common problem on the C55, not sure about E55) just be careful not to oversaturate the filter with oil no matter which one you decide to get.

If you can a great deal then i'd say get the k&n's,if not dont waste your money.You wont see enough gains for the cash out flow.
