    Default Air Filter

    Had my company car serviced (40K) on tuesday, went to refit my K&N filter panel & Spider Box last night to find they hadn't replaced the air filter, surely this should have been done on a major service?, it's not my car so i didn't get a list of parts replaced although I did get a full set of pads & brake fluid apparantly.

    Also the rear tyres are worn out on the inside edges, the camber must be wrong surely, although VX told me to go to Kwik Fit for new tyres, OK with me as I then should have a full set of Michelin Pilot Sports but why have they worn like that.

    Is the air filter not something like 80,000 or 4 years. It will be in the manual.

    My 2nd service did not have the air filter replaced at 2.5 years old and 19k miles. I replaced it myself at around seven quid for genuine Vx one.

    I'm pretty sure mine says 4 years, but that was in 2002, think vx reduced the intervals after a couple of years. I'll check later.

    I've never left it that long anyway
