like i said if you're looking for turbo noise then an intake helps, but a drop in filter won't since the oem system is designed to muffle the noise. you'll need an aftermarket intake.

Pros

Little more freeflowing with somewhat better protection
Cleanable

Cons

Still a drop in filter

If you've had your tune long enough the update its self is free, the only thing you have to pay for is the shop labor. Anywhere from 50-$150. My local tuner charged me $89 for the update.

The trick is to say you need a new air filter, and buy a cold air intake. If she asks why it looks different, just say its the 2016 revision.

I think the best route would be cost savings over time. No replacement filters and better fuel economy.

I've had the drop in and the intake (both K&N) and both when I was on stock tune. The drop-in gives you a little bit faster spool down low, translating to a slight improvement to throttle response. The CAI actually freed things up much more, so the engine breaths easier even on stock tune, and it sounds good as well. Pretty sure you get a little more HP and torque as a consequence as well (some say that's bs but there are plenty of dunno charts showing otherwise on healthy engines). If you know you're going to want a little more, just go with the CAI. Pretty easy to install too.

I had the both too, K&N makes an airbox with velocity stack that works better. I would consider all intakes, saw a nice Injen in the classifieds.
