    Vehicle : Signum

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 103000

    Default What's in Your Air box?

    Just put a panel filter in my car and did the air box mod and was greeted with this.



    This was worse than my previous vectra, yet still had a fag butt in that one. How does this happen?

    Spent some time clearing that lot out, did the air box mod and installed a K&N Panel Filter. Now a bit smoother, unsurprisingly.

    So the question is, what have you found in your air box on opening?

    Just makes you think. Even with a 'full service history' you find years worth of crud in places it shouldn't be if it had had an air filter change. Mine was not quite as bad but still way past the acceptable amount when I changed it. Obviously hadn't been changed in years despite the history.
