I've experienced "seat of the pants" performance gains when replacing the factory filter with a more breathable reusable filter in BMW's and I never experienced issues related to the filter change through many years of ownership.  When performing a service on my recently purchased 2011 Porsche Panamera Turbo at an independent mechanic's shop, I was told replacing the factory filter would not provide performance gains and the mass-sirflow-sensor would eventually be affected (I assume from potential filter-oil entering the engine).  Is this the case?
