Hi,

Can anyone personally recommend a performance panel air filter for the 2.0 16v Zetec Focus on a W plate. Instead of replacing at the usual service I would like to wash through and re oil if necessary depending on the filter manufacturer.

I know that I will get very little in gains, but if running the car for many years and paying circa 8 for a filter then it will work out cheaper, based on 35 for an aftermarket filter. If I were to go down the road of induction, I then have to get cold air feed, possibly less miles per gallon.

Thanks

Dom

Installed a K&N panel filter on mine a year or two ago. Bought it for around 20 and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
