    Default Pollen filter

    Was thinking about changing my pollen filter soon and was wondering if there's any real benefit to fitting the charcoal/ carbon filter instead of the standard white one; my car only has standard Air-Con and not ECC
    Cheers Pete

    The charcoal one also reduces odours coming into the cabin, whereas the paper one only reduces particles.
