    Turbo lag partly cured

    Bought a new Pipercross panel filter a couple of days ago, after fitting noticed the turbo lag between gears has reduced by a noticable amount, and it makes a nice 'sucky' sound too when I clog it after changing gear!
    Even though the car has a full dealer service history, the filter doesn't appear to have been changed at all since the car was new- 25K miles ago! Needless to say, it was pretty grubby. Don't know about you guys, but I've always changed air filters about every 8K miles (standard service interval)? Think I've just found a flaw in the 'long life service' scheme ;-)

    Air filters don't get changed as often as oil filters, not by ANY manufacturer's recommended schedule which I've ever seen...

    -Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind...

    Fitted an ITG panel filter myself last week - cant say I noticed a massive difference but I am sure it does something!

    I take it you didn't like my offer of a free Pipercross filter then?
