I have actually been considering the Koenig-specials filters.

The Mass Air Flow Sensors are very, very sensitive to some air filters.

Some K&N's have been known to cause CEL's from too much oil.

BMC is Ferrari's only choice for their F1 cars.

I would go with BMC only if you can get them.

I have been using Green Filter in all my vehicles and it is sooo much better than K&N but its too bad they dont offer it for Ferrari's
