    Ram Air

    The new Astra I have just bought on the internet has a sticker on the engine cover saying Ram Air, what will this be, as I have heard of this before. I am 100% sure it's an air filter. Are they any good? Is it a pannel filter or cone type as I have only seen the car in a picture. Then again it could have been taking off :roll: . Thanks

    The 888 Coupe had a Ramair panel filter in it, so they have good form with Vauxhalls already

    As steve says, 888's come with a Ram Air panel filter, so you might have a panel filter in there.
    It won't be the paper vauxhall one.
