I use bags because once you open that canister to dump the dirt/dust, you're putting a lot of it back into the air. For allergies a HEPA bag makes a big difference.

Well, I'm kind of inexperienced overall in regards to motor oils; but from what I have seen out of VWvortex and other european car forums, the VAG's fsi/tsi 2.0ts and BMW's N54 engines killed M1 0w40's TBN and viscosity range. The UOAs don't disclos

Baggers have higher efficiency for exhaust. Expensive Kirby vacuums still use bags. I guess if your not sensitive to dust bag less exhaust won't bother you. They puke out everything into the air.

I am not sure how they compare directly to the oem Toyotas but the Wearever Platinum ceramics are quiet and super low dusting. The Platinum semi metallics still dust a little like seeing metallics do but bite harder I believe. They do not make

I don't like to tell people to monkey with their air filters once installed, but perhaps ensure it's seated right. The way the G37's system is designed, if one isn't careful, one or both filters might not be forming a proper seal.

Just another money grab. Our elected and appointed numbnut officials have refined the extortion of additional 'revenue enhancement' like few others. And a majority of our feel-good electorate votes for these measures and propositions, too.
