    I know that, but if it's been on for 30000 miles, I'd be paying a lot less than one that's done 5000, but I was meaning more for general condition. £302+tax (and that's on offer) means £225 looks like a pretty good deal - go for it, I'd say.

    On a slightly different note, can these be fitted but still use the engine cover? Anybody have a pic of one fitted?

    the item wont be any different if its done 5000 or 50000, nothing that a clean and new filters wont sort. filtered air through it and some grime on the outside, nothing that would cause a dramatic demand for a reduced price.
