I own a 2002 Volkswagen Bora 1.9 TDi Sport 150 with 85,000 miles on the clock. It's a high miler as I use it pretty much every day for work and I need to travel about rather a lot. The car is pretty quick but had developed a flat spot around the 800 to 1800rpm spot. In an effort to fix it, I purchased one of your replacement air filters (P/N 33-2128). It arrived yesterday and despite the rain, I went out and fitted it straight away, removing the extremely grotty original filter plus general muck and leaves from the air box in the process. And, of course, went out for a test drive to see if it had worked.
So, did it fix the flat spot? Hell, yes! It also enormously improved throttle responsiveness and there was a very noticeable increase in power with much better acceleration. My Bora felt like the sporty diesel it should have been in the first place! I managed to scare myself silly by activating the traction control system in *4th* while accelerating out of a corner. Now, that has *never* happened before!
I definitely recommend fitting one of your filters and only wish I'd done it earlier. Now, how do I claim for soiled underwear ..? :)
P.S. Why aren't your filters fitted as standard equipment?

Installation time and procedure in my Audi was exactly as stated. No surprises. Noticeably improved throttle response with the K&N cold air intake versus the stock airbox. Definitely recommend this upgrade.
Delivery was fast even with standard shipping. Install was a little tricky but not because of the filter but because of my vehicle (2011 Audi Q5 3.2 V6 Quattro). The screws did not align exact with the housing but nothing a pair of pliers didn't fix by bending them just ever so slightly. Other than that, I love the filter. I am unsure if this added any more horsepower but I didn't notice a little more pep and get up and go after the install. Fuel economy seems the same but I hadn't been recording the mileage. In conclusion, I am very satisfied. P.S. MAKE AN AIR INTAKE FOR MY VEHICLE AND I'LL BUY IT!!
