If you under-oil a K&N filter, it doesn't function as "filter".
Even when properly oiled, K&N filters pass considerably more contaminants than other filters (filters 13x worse than an inexpensive NAPA paper filter)
Even when properly oiled, K&N filters clog more quickly and hold fewer total contaminants than other filters.
Properly servicing a K&N filter requires more-frequent cleanings than simply replacing the OEM filter.
Properly servicing a K&N filter requires 24+ hours for the filter to dry, compared to a 5 minute change with the more-effective OEM filter.

The only joke is that people still choose to use those filters, even after being made aware of their deficiencies.

do you feel any sound or power differences after changing the air filter?

@denny

I suggest you use your Google machine to do some of your own research. Some are biased (for whatever reason) and are selective on what they share.... I haven't ever had any sensor issues.. just better MPG. power gain is negligible, but turbos need air and if you do any mod, more air helps.
https://www.carsdirect.com/aftermark...-intake-system

"There are very few reasons not to buy a K&N intake system, as with K&N products, you always know what you are getting. Power gains are proven and displayed for each individual application, and their products are backed by extensive warranties. If you are unsure about which intake system is the best choice for your vehicle, K&N is a safe bet, and one that will not cause any warranty concerns down the road."

I know one person that has this AEM intake on their QX30 and they are very happy. I am happy with just the K&N drop in.
