    Z16XE air filter

    I have been advised to get a new air filter for my 1.6 16V SXI, where is the cheapest place to buy them and do they vary in quality and price

    cheers

    Probably won't get it cheaper than vauxhall mate, other than trade prices at motor factors!

    take it that is just for a standard vauxhall one guys, i see pictures on here of people with blue/red etc, are they any better or is that just to make your engine look nicer?

    They're performance filters mainly mate

    Allow better airflow without letting more dust and stuff in!

    Pipercross Panel filters, K&N, Jetex are ones to look at if you are interested in performance

    I looked in halfords for one the other day just for a rough idea for my 1.6 and they're £8 so see if VX are any cheaper than that.
    I'll be getting a performance one for mine tho.

    I went for an ITG Panel filter from Thorney Motorsport. Excellent filter IMO plus their client list impresses me (client list includes F1 teams and 888 Racing in the BTCC).

    I might have one - I put my veccy - c on and derestricted my air box and added a courtenay panel not long after a service.

    Let me find out, I'm sure I kept it because it was new.
