I can't recall the last time I saw a paper air filter on an on-road car....maybe that's a truck or buggy thing.

As far as posting pictures, you need to make 10 post then the system will allow you to post pictures...so get to posting

For on-road cars we use foam filters. Also, we apply some drops of filter oil onto it
(massage it with your hands so oil goes all over the filter foam) so dirt stucks on the
outside of the filter and doesnt come into the engine through the carburator.Some people
throw it after a race,but you can also wash it with soap, let in dry and oil it again.
This way you can use it for a couple of times.

The only paper fiters easy to get are the fuel filters of a 1:1 car and that is still done. If you want a good filter without maintenance the paper is the choice. If you want performance a foamfilter with a good maintenance is needed.

i have used xceed, team titan and novarossi. I really like team titan filters.
The best of i have ever used is gq filters but i cant find them anymore(the orange
ones with grey foam). Dont forget the filter oil, it really does help with dirt. i use tornado oil filter
and its good.
