Why would you want a K&N when you've got Pipercross' foam filters.

They might flow less, but they filter more.

They're also a lot easier to clean and if your filter's falling apart, speak to Pipercross!

The only reason the BFO is bigger is because it's supposed to be the biggest filter you're able to squeeze under the Corsa B bonnet!

Explain this please. How can it possibly filter more, when there are visable gaps between the foam "strands"? IMO the K&N is going to filter much more shit out than a foam filter would, as it relies on the tight weave of the cotton, not the coating of oil that the air may or maynot come into contact with.
