Tomorrow i am going to Jabbasport to have a Jetex filter fitted for 40 quid, as recommended by SteveTDCi. Hopefully it should make the car rev a bit more freely. Maybe it'll be a trip to superchips HQ at the end of the month for a bit more oommmph.

A slow start I know but we all gotta start somewhere...

Bit of a long drive for an air filter....[;)]

Get them to send it and I'll pop round and fit it for you. I've got a Green filter in mine and it seemed to make the throttle response sharper.

mate.. are you seriously driving from surrey to peterborough to have an air filter fitted ? I'm assuming the mkv is similar to the iv.. mine just drops into the airbox.. barely a five min job. Honestly mate, do it yourself and save yourself the petrol and mileage [:)]

DEFINETLY do not drive up for an air filter.

It's like a fitting a new tail light bulb, easiest job in the world!

I know its easy but I also have another appointment in the area - hence the journey. Even though I don't pay for fuel, I certainly wouldn't be driving that way solely for a filter...does that make sense ?

I think the filter itself is 37 quid - and the invoice will be made out to my employer ![:D] so no worries [:D]

Was thinking Superchips but am also thinking abt OBD2 so maybe its best waiting til November - only 6 weeks anyway. Do you know a "guesstimate" price ?
