Is it worth it at all to get those stock Paper filters replaced with the k&n one's for 30 bucks or not really?

IF YOU CAN FIND THE K&N ONE!!!
Sorry, I just spent 4 hours driving today looking for a K&N filter. 3 autozones, a pepboys, and a couple other stores later, no filter. WTF.
Does anyone know where I can PHYSICALLY BUY a 33-2070?

Didn't mean to hijack - as soon as I get my replacement I will answe this question.

You'll have better luck at bavauto.com, or any other K&N retailer online. And yes, it's a lot better to switch out your current air filter for a Green Filter or K&N. It allows for nearly unrestricted airflow to the engine, while still filtering the air. Just wash it every 50,000 miles or so and your golden. The 1,000,000 warranty can't be a bad thing either.

Sorry, I screwed up my last post.

What I intended to say was that I bought a K&N filter through Napa Auto Parts. I didn't notice a change in performance but did gain almost 2 mpg.

That's one of the main plusses to the K&N switch. Performance increase is negligible but still there.
