Two Liter Touring Spider Air Filter recommendations appreciated?

The air filter currently in the car has brown fuzzy filter media that sort of looks like 'pipe cleaner' material and also has orange rubber or plastic ends.

Would anyone know of a better air filter? I see this one at Classic Alfa for about $25 but they say it has to be "crushed to an oval" to fit in the air box:

Also, I inquired about a Two Liter air filter to Dave at Mr. Fiat and he responded that he would order some and place them on eBay. Unfortunately they are three times the CA filter's price and also look like they would have to be 'formed' into an oval shape:

Any suggestions? I feel that the fuzzy pipe cleaner material is restrictive to the air flow...the car seemed noticeably quicker without an air filter.

I bought one from OKP that I've never used. I think it is much more like the original, which would make sense, since Christian has a 102. I'll try to get a picture for you shortly, but I bought it several years ago so he may or may not still offer the same style.

Just checked. Mine is the same as CA. I wouldn't bother with Mr. fiat.
