    IITC the only difference is that the Courenay ones are foam, all the others are paper/cotton. Whether that makes a difference has not been proved.

    I've got a pipercross one that i'm sure is foam - couldn't guarantee it though!

    There was a video Ffoeg posted the other day that compared paper/cotton filters etc with foam ones, worth a watch!

    I'm using a K&N panel filter myself. Don't know why I choose that one though.
