A great product. I have never done any engine work before, but this was quite straight forwards. As with all of the reviews - ignore step 1 on the instructions - you don't need to remove the AFM. To remove the AFM bolts, use the nut supplied in the kit as the locking nut to loosen the bolts out. The only thing that was really awkward was the cold air intake pipe. I have an S-Ltd where the radiators and power steering completely obstruct where the instructions say the pipe should go. In trying to do this, my pipe split. Bought some larger guage aluminium flexible tube from B&Q for £5 and routed the pipe through the lower edge of the wheel arch and then straight up to the K&N intake from the engine floor (whilst on axle stands).
The engine positively gulps in the air now and as everyone says - gives better throttle response and a real change in tone at 4000rpm and above. With the air intake pipe being quite direct, you can see the temperature guage actually go down when you put your foot down and draw in more cool air.
I'd recommend you get one.
