Installing a K&N type filter "does" improve performance on some makes and models, others it does not. To simply make a "blanket statment" the filter does nothing is a very "uneducated
statement" in the area of K&N-oligy. There are tests to prove the K&N type filters do infact improve performance in cartain applications.
If all K&N's were "bogus" people simply would not purchase them! K&N makes millions of $$$ anually!
I can attest to experience with K&N type filters on certain Audi models and there are performance improvments! If you dont believe me come on over my house and you can drive my Audi's and see for yourself!
If you've had a bad experience with a K&N type filter, please share it with us, that way we all know better next time. Or someone might see your doing something wrong and help you fix your error.

really was any gains to be had!
Funny how the A4 Turbo guys all RAVE about the K&N Cone type setup "MC" sells!
