Replacement Air Filter

Maybe I am missing something but this seems like a heck of a deal.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I was looking to replace the OEM as they about ready and I am not ready to drop $$$ on a new intake set up yet. I had been moving different replacement filters to my wish list for some time then today I came across these. Figured it was worth a shot to spend $23 vs $80 or $100+.

Anyone used this brand before? Am I going to hate them? Are they complete shit?
If no one has any answers I should get some back to you soonish... Weather is not the best but I will at least install the filters when they come in and take it for a drive when it clears up.

They’re just particle filters. For 25.00 worth a try. No German needed qualitat here. Just a decently constructed particle filter needed. I ordered a pair.
If good, then good...

Not worth the risk. Just go with the aFe filters. The link below was the lowest priced M6 filters that I found at the time. It doesn't list M6 but it is the same part number.

I went with K&N drop-ins and have been very happy. Be sure to remove the charcoal pre-filters while you're in there- they are quite restrictive

After much research, this is the route I went on my M6 as well as my Rs7 previously. Outside a full, high quality intake, BMC drop ins are about the best you'll get

I'm sure the BMC and K&N are both very quality but I couldn't pass up $20 filters.
They are a dry filter and seem to crafted well. Fitment was perfect. I was expecting the mold to be slightly off for the price.
If they actually add any power I can't tell you because who is gonna notice 10hp on a 500+hp lol.
Of course you don't get the cool intake sound with just the filter but there does seem to be a slight increase in spool noise. Maybe it has always been there since this is my first time really trying to listen to it. So far no complaints as I was just looking for replacement filters until I am ready to drop $ on an intake.

Sorry my phone camera is a potato.
