Hmm ok that sounds like a resounding 'No' then.
Could stick with OPM part from Alfa Vospers at £11 odd for a FIAT oil filter, or get a MANN one like last time.
On the website for K&N though-
'◾Designed for high flow rates to improve performance'
• 'K&N oil filters also use a resin impregnated cellulose filter media. This allows for higher flow rates while providing outstanding filtration. '
• Resin-impregnated filter media provides maximum filtering surface for contaminant removal
• Anti-drainback valve (where applicable) eliminates dry starts, prevents oil from draining back into crankcase during engine shutdown
• Traps 99% of harmful contaminants
• High-Flow Rate
K&N oil filters have filtering media that allows for higher flow rates while providing outstanding filtration. High filter flow rates are important in racing vehicles where heavier grade oil is used and the oil is pumped much faster than in a standard vehicle. When the engine is circulating oil at high GPM rates, the high-flow oil filter helps reduce the loss of pressure through the filtering process.

Raises the response time on throttle. All I have to do is drain the oil 4000 miles later using conventional oil. Replacement? Well I think either 8k or 12k depending where you take your vehicle.
HP-1010 - K&N Oil Filters, Oil Filter direct from K&N
Well I'm not exactly racing my vehicle but after the very noticeable difference the K&N air filter made to my car I'm willing to give it a shot especially at a snip at £8.99 from Euro Car Parts I might just give it a go!
K&N Oil Filter
I like the idea of the valve also that claims to keep the muck in the filter and not to allow it back into the system.
After my oil changes its not long before the oil is black again.
