If the pods hit my shins, it's not a matter of getting my pants dirty that would bug me, it would be knocking into the pods every time I move my legs.

I also wouldn't mind a bit more throat in the sound, not at all loud but just a bit growlier.
That picture is a perfect example of a K+N filter not fitting right (it's bowed back in front and unfiltered air and nuts are getting by for it). The trouble is that in my experience once they have been bowed back like that there is no fixing them. The rubber gets a memory that keeps bowing the filter back even after you cut into it to allow the filter to slide around the starter cover thusly letting the front lip fit over the front of the box like it should be.

Square airboxes? Personally I like them more than clam shells. Easier to work on and they work better IMO.
