Default K&N CAI for cheap

i have the opportunity to get a k&n CAI off of craigslist from a guy for about a third of the price of msrp. I really want to get it because its so cheap but have been reading things on thr forums about it and have gotten the impression that its not a solid intake. It is an oiled filter. i can get it for about 80 bucks. A. do u guys think that i should get it and B. whats a good way to check if its in good condition when i go and check it out. Let me know. Thanks

not sure what you mean by solid intake but k&n are as good as rest when it comes to volume of air.obviously all you can do is inspect filter for rips inside and out you probly will have to buy cleaning kit and reoil.(10-15bucks)hopefully filter is not soiled beyond cleaning or you could pick up new filter for it (30-50bucks)
