Ok, I thought I'd add two pics from a GTG I was at a few months back. TDI with a K&N filter, "very lightly oiled" as the owner put it. Low on power, this after getting chipped. MAF was pulled from the car and this very lightly oiled filter (recharged, as K&N puts it), was dead. MAF was replaced and all power was back. Oil coats the MAF and the grit that gets by the K&N collects on the MAF, burning it out.

Reason enough not to use a K&N, unless one has deep pockets and doesn't mind replacing MAFs every so often...
