Just out of interest, if a sports type filter is fitted, do any adjustments have to be made for the too lean/rich conditions or does the ECU and sensors and probes and gizmos self compensate for the difference in fuelling requirements.

It's not the particles that cause the problem, it's droplets of the oil that's used to stop the particles getting through. The oil droplets can stick to the MAS and this can stop it working :( . K&N apparently tend to "over-soak" the cotton, if you rinse the filter or try to sponge some of the oil off you should prevent that problem happening.

My K&N was dry to touch but killed my MAS off within 25 miles!

Whether it was 100% healthy before I will never know (feels much better now it is replaced).

back to OEM paper air filter?

Yes. Got refund on K&N from reseller.


Car feels better with OEM filter and new MAS than ever before.

Pending news from MBUK as to whether or not they will support my claim against K&N for the costs of my MAS.

Rather a sign of their own lack of faith in them, MBUK will not state the cause of failure to my MAS as apparently they are too delicate and fail at any time for a multitude of reasons. :confused:
