    2.0 Diesel, Remap, Air Filter?

    As some of you know I recently bought a 320d. I am going to have it remapped at some point in the future and am wondering if fitting a Pipercross filter will have any advantages over the standard paper filter?
    The airfeed trunking on this engine looks quite restrictive so are any potential gains from the freer flowing filter going to be negated by this?

    Any advice/experience/comments would be helpful.

    The standard filter is fine Ben, the only advantage of a pipercross is that they can be cleaned & reused.

    If it was me I would save your money for the remap, that's where you will see the decent gains in performance and economy.
