    some early 1.8's had a different airbox, but the later one's are identical to all the rest of the range, so nearly one filter covers all...1.9 CDti, 2.2, 3.2, v6CDTi etc etc..

    so nearly talking baloney but not quite

    So i guess what he really meant was that they don't have one in at all, but it sounded slightly better if he made up an excuse!

    Must be catching, I went into Telford Halfords for a can of touch up paint for my wife's car, due part ex next week, having been told over the phone that registration and VIN number would suffice. Lad on mix counter clearly didn't want to know, full of bull as to why he couldn't help. Even showed him details from colour chart card on counter - with paint code, and he insisted it was all wrong and he was right.
    I usually go to Shrewsbury branch, because of ropey attitude at Telford, but we were in the area. Oh well, car's going, used Vauxhall Ruby red from my old Royale Coupe days then t cut and colour polished. Close enough lol.

    Your better off goin to a motor factors, I have a 52 1.8 and they had plenty in stock from £6. All the halfrauds near me dont have any airfilters listed for a vec c.
    Not sure what the Stealers charge, might be worth a phone call.
