    Staying at near redline for rpm is not good for the engine, the oil temp will go up very high and viscosity will drop. This is where the 3.0 or 2.5L will have the advantage.

    Well how long do you want to maintain top speeds over 200kph anyway?

    Hahaha forget about the Mark X la, it's out of your car's league for top speeds even if you have remap and use light weight rims! That car is designed to be a highway cruiser that can reach top speed around 250kph. I know coz I own one for over 5 years now. :)

    Hahaha got many other Mark X owners la. I also haven't been to that highway maybe for over a year now so I highly doubt it was me.

    Some say aftermarket filter lets more air in to boost performance but some say it only lets the dust and debris at the same time and affect overall performance. Which one? :dontknow:

    Drop-in filter bro. Not open pods. Drop-in filter is similar to your stock filter. You drop it in your airbox to replace the stock filter. I’m using drop-in also. No problem. Just need to clean it regularly.

    Yeah I was referring to the drop-in type. I heard its filtration is not as good as the stock one. Power increased at the cost of engine's longevity, no?

    Nope, mine is a KL (W) plate.

    Just don't buy HKS foam type or Blitz metal mesh type even if they are original because their filtration is poor. Just buy cloth type like Simota//Works or K&N. Anyway don't expect much out of those, you'll be lucky if you feel even the slightest improvement. Theoretically they increase airflow and produce more power but too little to notice, so buying those is more for cost saving if you want to use the car for long term coz the filter can last the lifetime by just keep washing them and never need to replace anymore.

    Like what @6UE5t said. I’m using works/simota on mine and so far i do notice a slight improvement in throttle response. And also you dont need to change the filters. Just wash and clean it with the proper cleaner and drop it back in. No need replacement like stock filters.

    Probably just me but I feel simolta needs more frequent cleaning. I hear K&N can go longer in between cleans. BTW, slight improvement only when it's nice and clean. There was once I forgot to clean in a long time. Was wondering why my car felt sluggish and fuel hungry :pepsi:

    Has anybody tried those replica bmc types yet? Have an ori in the bimmer. It's nice
