Has anyone tried the K&N filter?

I used them on my old Hondas and they did seem to add about 1mpg and a *tiny* bit of extra low end power. Of course, that's probably a miscalibration in my butt dyno...

Guys I ordered the K&N Filter from amazon but returned it due to reading BMC being better. I ordered BMC Filter from Bimmerzone (USA/PA) shop their price was better than anything I could find online, if your model is not listed chat with them or call them

BMC is better in what way? Letting less dirt in than K&N?

I have a K&N filter on my A4 2.0T.. just dropped it in because the paper filter needed to be replaced anyway. Did not notice any difference in sound or power.
