|GreyBullit||My only issue that I am concerned with is water intrusion, in to the open end.. We get lots of very heavy rain in Florida. So far I have not noticed any issues but I only been in the heavy rain once in crawling traffic..|

The K&N open end filter is nowhere near as loud as an open element (short ram) intake. I would think that your green filter is similar, though I believe it is more open than the K&N is.

I have the green filter, I have about 2000 miles on it.. I have gotten use to the sound... It really isn't that annoying unless your getting on it.. I have the green filter with the open end, I have also done the snorkel delete.
I have been thinking about cutting and smoothing the flat end off the stock filter to cover the hole and see what the difference is.
I just did a 1200 mile trip one way, about to head back on monday, I got 40 mpg. So im pretty happy with it.

For those of you who want to try an open-ended filter like the Buscher Green but are worried that you might not like the sound, K&N has another option with a bit more versatility:
If you want more flow, take the cap off. If you want quieter sound or cooler intake air, install the cap. This is the filter that is included in the 57S-4000 kit available for the MK3 but, like the Green, it is a direct drop-in replacement for the stock filter.
I've installed an Outerwears prefilter on mine, and if I get into dusty situations I can just pop the cap back in for a bit more protection.
