Air Filter Recommendation

Hello everyone.
I need to change the Air filter on my i8 and was wondering if anyone have a good recommendation?

It is a 2016 with a Stage 1 tune if that makes it easier to help me .

Looked at Pats video about them. Is anyone else having the same issues with K&N filter as he did in the movie?

Swapped back to stock

I ran a K&N for about a month and then I saw Pat's video. I don't have a side sill that would likely prevent more debris than my stock, fully open area so the amount of stuff that might be forced up the intake channel concerned me. My car is a daily so I run it in all weather as well. That all led me to revert back to the stock air filter.

I did a quick search and I'm surprised a company hasn't built an intake system for this car. I get it's really no benefit to our car but I figured someone would create something.
