MG MGF Technical - TF135 Panel air filters

Hi everyone - I need to replace the air filter element and was thinking of using a "performance" panel one but not many seem listed for TFs. Any suggestions or don't bother because the original ones are pretty efficient already?


IIRC the 135 and 160 air boxes are the same, in which case there are a number of "performance" or "free flow" panels available.

Green (sold as MG Sport and Racing X-power OEM upgade, but avaible direct from Green part no P950375)
K&N (
Pipercross (MS and PtP sell them)

Very modest power gains and a minor change in engine note (some people say) plus a slightly smoother power curve. I noticed the last one, but frankly none of the rest. That said, it works well and is washable so saves on landfill each year lol

By the way, there are plenty of places to buy the panels other than those I listed. I justgave a starting point for information (not necessarily the cheapest place to buy)

Cheers, I'll have a look at those. :D
