    While it says nothing about their actual performance, this short video gives a nice visual of the air filters (yes, there are two filters): Skipping ahead to 0:50 will get you to the pertinent portion of the video. For what it's worth, it does appear that they are excellent quality.

    Wind noise in full glass roof new Model S

    Just a thought: In post # 8, Vortexx mentioned that placing masking tape over the gap resulted in a significant reduction of wind noise.
