Well Happy Replacement filter.......which brand ???

Looking to get a replacement filter for a 147 2.0.

Re: Replacement filter.......which brand ???

In my experience the aftermarket filters are a waste of money and invariably flow less air than the original fitment parts. (remember that induction system efficiency and filter material technology has improved constantly of the years - there's now little if anything to be gained from these costly replacements)

I think a replacement panel filter is still worthwhile. It lasts longer between changes/cleans.

If you do use an aftermarket filter, don't use one that is oiled because it will wreck your MAF sensor.
