I have had a k&n of some type (panel or cone) on my last three cars and have always oiled both sides.
Also, DO NOT error on the side of OVER-OILING like some people say to do on this BB. You can over-oil and it can cause problems. You just want to coat the cotton gauze, not drown it.
: Thanks for your response.
: Responses from the e36 board say that you should only oil the outside.
: The K&N instructions are SILENT on this issue - hence my question.
: : both...
: : Take a look at the link I have included.
: : Sean: Do you oil both sides of the "drop-in" k&n filter after cleaning, or only the outside?
