I really doubt it's going to make any difference.

I was under the impression it was just the American 08-09 cars which had the charcoal filters. Pretty sure the EU cars always had the less restrictive paper type.

I replaced mine recently with a K&N since the OEM one was looking a bit manky. At 65 or whatever, it's not exactly a big spend. I find there's a little bit more of an induction noise but nothing mad. Nothing my wife notices anyway,
