Green Filter

Yey. Installed my Green Filter to day on my 230k.

Most impressed how easy this was to do - Took about 3 mins. I know you guys said in other posts that it was easy, but being a bit of a mechanophobe (Is that even a word), I thought i'd still struggle.

Not had any chance to notice any difference yet - Only been on a very short drive. Engine did sound smoother and slightly deeper, but not neccesarily any louder or anything. Looking forward to going on a longer drive to see if there is any difference in terms of power, consumption, noise etc, as the afore mentioned things may have been because;

a) My stereo was turned right down, when normally it is blasting
b) My previous filter may have needed a good clean...

Anyways...still glad i've changed it.

The filters are great for another reason. I noticed a improvement in mileage with the first tank of gas. On my 55, the exhaust does have a little more throat to it, but the improved mileage was the greatest benefit.
