996 Air Filters - Are they any good?

I have just removed the airfilters in my 996 and both of the air boxes have a fair amount of grit in them. This is under the airfilters where in theory only air that has passed through the filter should be.

My question is - is this a common occurance?

Here is a pic showing the grit which is the light colours around the screw holes.

Cheers
Simon

Stock filters aren't up to much tbh. Better if oiled, but a much better option are the pipercross replacements. Straight fit, seal much better and do what they're supposed to. Work out cheaper as well.


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED

Yes Simon. I use them quite a bit as they're a better deal on services vs. stock
