K&N all the way bud. Not a big fan of Unifilters. They can get sucked into the engine and cause damage. True story - Happened to my friend. The engine wasn't distroyed - but it cost him a pretty penny to clean it out. <p></p><i></i>

My Unifilter has done 30,000 km...with no worries at all...they have a better bellmouth entry than the K&N. However, both are still very good and better than the rest. <br><br>The Unifilter, once a little dirty, works a bit better. Lots of trail motorbikes and off-road racers use them here because of this.<br><br>How can the filter get sucked into the engine when it has a mesh cage for support? And how well-maintained was that filter? Should have been covered by its' warranty. <p></p><i></i>

None and never will be one. <br><br>The reason is there is not sales generated for the brand line to have K&N to create a kit for the car. <br><br>YOu have to make your own from Honda Acord kits and recut it to size. <p></p><i></i>
