Air filter?

So what do you guys use for air filters? I still have the OEM air filter box but I'm contemplating a CAI since the price difference is negligible for a disposable drop in compared to a K&N drop in.

Unless there's a cheap place to get an OEM air filter on line...

93 325is - sold!

2000 540ia- sold!

I always seem to have a lot of dust under my hood and on my engine so I went with a more conservative filter on my cai. It is an Amsoil EaAU filter. The model is 3560 (I have a 3.5" intake). When it looks dusty you just pull it off and spray the dust off with an air hose.

The intake boot and heat shield is the Jim Conforti model. Very Nice!
