I've been toying with the idea of replacing the drop-in OEM air filter with a K&N one. Has anyone done this, and if so, have you had any engine problems as a result? I'd appreciate a reply.

    I've been using the K&N air filters on all my cars for years. Have had one on my 2007 S-Type R and it works great. When it gets dirty, cleaning and re-oiling it is a breeze, I would recommend you purchase the cleaning kit when you get it, or later on when you will need it. You'll never need to buy another air filter.

    We were driving in Arizona and our Jaquar 2003 S-type suddenly lost all power and eventually came to a stop in the desert. It was discovered the mechanic who installed the air filter used the wrong one. How will this affect performance? We were towed 35 miles to a repair shop, had to stay the night in Prescott with no car!
