    It cost me about 65 quid trade for edge last time I bought it. Magnetec is a fair bit cheaper but will need changed every 10k

    I change mine once a year, it normally gets overlooked but its your health that could suffer. Not expensive either.

    By the way some pollen filters are black when they are new, the are carbon ones

    to right ignore vx and do my own due a 4th service april. oil, fuel, pollen, air filter and brake fluid + a diesel cleaner. my small service is a oil, pollen and a diesel cleaner.

    when i got my car 3 1/2 years old service book said nothing about air filter. took the airbox lid off and sure enough it was black as the tyres and full of leaves, feathers, bugs and children. changed it and picks up so much better
