    Stock Air Filters Vs Other Options

    hi all,
    just curios how many of you guys are using aftermarket air filters versus the OEM. Would spending a few extra bucks for the aftermarket is worth it? Any performance difference? I have 2014 V10 Spyder.

    I was debating getting aftermarket ones as well at one point.

    From the posts i have read here...didnt seem like there are any real gains with aftermarket ones. In-fact, the car is worse off with the aftermarket filters if i remember correctly.

    I believe Squadra Corse (Lamborghini's factory racing division) use BMC air filters, quite possibly retail parts. Does anyone know for sure?
