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?

I learned today that you collect 1MMC (one Million Miles Cars). I have in my Volkswagen T5 2.5l 174hp from January 2006 the K&N from the beginning and well no 1 Million miles but 1 Million 75,000 km with the first engine! All our other cars do have K&N filters and nearly every customer gets one.
No troubles everybody is happy.
Thanks for such a reliable product!

Fitment is great, it looks good and works as advertised. I run K@N filters in all of my vehicles because they are easy to clean and maintain. The fact that they work for a lifetime and I never need to buy another filter is an added bonus. There are power gains to be had by using these filters. Will you feel it in the seat of your pants? No, but my mileage has gone up every car I have.
