Dirt that is. Have an oil analysis performed and if you care to compare have another one done with a stock paper filter. What you'll find is that a K&N doesn't really filter all that well. I'd use a very clean one for racing and then switch back to paper for street duty.
Doubt anyone cares to hear about that though, K&Ns once dirty actually flow worst than a paper filter also. European car seemed to spread a lot of non-sense around and most people buy into their claims, you never do hear anything negative about any of the products advertised on that magazine. Wonder why. :-) Oh well.
