    Default 2.8T Airbox

    My new air filter arrived this morning

    Without naming and shaming......I deliberately checked with them before ordering because I thought the 2.8T had a different airbox. They looked at their database and assured me it was the same as all the other models.

    I should have known better than to doubt what I was certain I'd read on here but the guy on the phone was so adamant I went ahead and ordered anyway and only 3 1/2 weeks later it arrives...

    So, lifted the bonnet, dismantled the maze of (well, 2 really ) pipes so I could get at the screws to open the airbox. Eventually get the top off and take the OE filter out...and immediately notice the bottom half of the airbox is different too - there's no pipe to remove and the intake is on the front wall rather than in the bottom of the box.

    All very interesting, but not daunted I removed the old filter and lowered the shiny new one into place. It seemed a bit awkward so I lifted it up a bit, jiggled it around and tried again, but no joy. Took it out again, held it up to the original filter and guess what? Wrong size

    Cue me on the phone to complain, and I happened to get the same chap I spoke to last time, and he remembered me asking. He rechecked the database and guess what? The vectra-c.com database was right all along!

    So they're now sending me the correct filter and a complimentary cleaning kit for dropping a b*llock, but they will be updating their website as soon as possible

    Was wondering what the order code was for the KN filter you got was, as I have been looking and can't find the right one for my 2.8 v6 turbo

    Mine's not K&N

    But if it helps, it's the same as the SAAB 9-3 2.8T and also the old Astra...
