The K&N lets your engine breath better than the stock filters.You actually get to notice a little difference while driving.May increase your mileage by 1 or so again if you drive in a sane way.The price is between 3 to 5 K.
(Don't actually remember the life span of the stock filters but i guess its around 15-20K)

stock filter lasts for some 10k kms, and a k&N filter claims that it works for 1lakh kms but in a country like india it doesnt apply, here it runs for some 50k kms but for every 25k kms you need to clean it, you get a cleaning kit from k&n whic is use dto clean the filter.

I think K&N comes with a million mile warranty. So, it can survive our dusty condition for few lacs kilometers with no doubt.

A stock filter can last upto 40K Kms,that is what my Service Advisor told me.

those having these filters , do you clean it on your own or ask them to be cleaned while servicing the car??
Cleaning these filters like normal ones(with air pressure) is not recommended.
It spoils the K&N filter and like i earlier said give it to the dealer for cleaning or buy the cleaning kit and clean it yourself.
