Don't do it! Why not?
Well if you replace the airfilter there will be more air coming into the system. (right this is what I want! So?!)
Well inside the airbox (so to speak: luchtfilterhuis) is a sensor. The system meassures the airflow by letting the sensor glow, and by the speed it cools down, it calculates the amount of fuel etc. But with the replacement filter, the sensor cools down TOO quick. The system starts to glow up the sensor again, again it cools down too fast. Over and over again.
Result the sensor gets burnt. It is not replacable. So you need to replace the whole airbox. costs approx 1000 Euro.
So my suggestion is not to do it. I wanted to do it too, but this is what the mechanics told me. So hardly any use, mate! Sorry

Anyway, I have my replacement filter for over 40k km, no problems yet
