K&N Filters...

I have seem opinions from 2 sides and just wanted to know what everyone thought about this..
Does putting on a K&N Filter improve the performance of your car at all?? And if so would it improve it on LPG..

I've read on at least one occasion where someone tested std filter (in good condition) vs K&N and basically saw no changes in times - and by the same token there are lots of comments from people saying that their car feels more responsive and "breathes easier" etc. with a K&N fitted.

I have a K&N filter myself - always have and always will - but not necessarily for outright performance reasons - I never did notice any change as such once it was fitted. My reasons are that the K&N is less likely to suffer as time passes than a std filter, and the K&N is better in the long run for cost - to keep a good std filter in your airbox you'd easily be putting 5 new ones in during the same period a single K&N will last (probably even before it needs it's first clean!).

In short - performance improvement? - not sure - insurance against loss of performance? - definitely. It is simply the premium solution for engine filtration.
