    That's me I 'm a happy man, done the airbox mod - special thanks to Installer for the How 2. Removed the restriction flap pipe thing and just fitted a standard Air filter. Ok the results are not as obvious as a K &N filter but they are noticeable, the MPG has risen, and the response between 3000rpm - 4000rpm is a lot better as well as lower down.

    Below are pics of the Air filter - please note was completely black (should this not only be half dirty? Makes me think the filter was 'turned round' at its last service)

    Also please note the strange rubbish I found in the Airbox too - OK grass and dirt but a chewed up magazine!

    Did my air box mod recently and noticed that my filter had already been turned around also.

    It has only ever had its 20K service. Is the filter an item that should be changed during this service?

    Have i been billed for a new filter when all they have done is turned it around?


    On a better note, having done this mod together with the 'caterman' makes it a completely different car. Not only has the MPG gone up but so has the performance.

    Why don't they build them capable of this performance in the first place?

    Oh no no!!!

    By an independent but he did not charge me for the airfilter so he hasn't done anything wrong really.

    Never take my car to the Dealer - your 3 year car warranty is still valid anywhere you get the car serviced so long as you service it at its appropriate intervals you are fine - that's the only requirement .

    And for the fact that the filter only cost £7ish would be mad to pay £30 to get it fitted when there is a perfect How2 on it!
