    Hi
    Has anyone upgraded there filters on a c350 diesel?
    Looking at k&n fikters and can only see them for petrol models?
    Any others or do they do them?

    Thanks

    Pointless exercise. K&N filters do nothing for power, filter worse, make more noise and empty your wallet.
    Been discussed on here several times.

    Oh really thought they were meant to help with the filtering and gave the bonus of being reused.

    No, that’s just K&N’s marketing department being snake oil salesmen. As LK says.

    Save your money and change the OEM one more often.

    Yep, K&N won't map to the ECU properly either, causes issues with EML lights in diesels. Pointless waste of time in any modern fuel injection vehicle where the fuelling is pre mapped.
