Nothing from K&N for our cars yet. Just keep the OEM filters clean by changing regularly until something else is announced. I'm not sure about the fuel filters and will be interested to see how others respond.

There sure is a fuel filter, although I can't tell you how to reach it. Normally they are being replaced at every 100'000km (60k miles).

As for K&N filters - just yesterday I've done some search through this forum regarding the impact they make on the motor. Well, guys say that all these high-performance filters make intake sound louder, air filtration - worse, and in no way affect performance. So I dumped the idea of buying one.
