you see i already have a conical RE-0950 on my accent viva CRDi RED too! but then getting the engine bay washed every once in a while is a little difficult task, so was kind of looking forward to getting the green cotton stock replacement that is available so guys please give your views!


EDIT: forgot to add, i have been using this filter for the past 35000kms and i am loving the roar, and the accelerator is real smooth with this than with the stock its just awesome, so i wanted to know how much difference it would make with the stock replacement before i make my kill!
Raj, I am not an expert on air filters but the difference is certainly much much more to be experienced with CAI rather than just going for a stock replacement filter.

6K is right for the green wind. its not a difficult install. IMO its best you wait for a few weeks , just so that you get the kick again when the performance goes up a little after the install.

Hey Avi, congrats on the new addition to your car. Must also appreciate you for the nice review and lovely pictures.

There are a few things though which we should probably discuss during the next meet, do remind me then.

For now, go ahead and have fun and hey do move on and do the upgrade on the air intake and boss if you are gonna drive the way you usually do , trust me and get the tyre upgrade now.

Nice accompanying pics and wine and all! The car has served you well.Good show! Hope you are enjoying the music. The rear speaker placement in your car made me curious.Could you please describe..

Cheers

you could try tri-phase module for your petrol accent. search for it on team-bhp.

Thanks buddy. Your absolutely right, the way i drive, i need better rubber. But, i want to wait for another 10K kms as Yash mentioned and then change to some lovely, fatter, performance rubber with those drool V shape pattern. But, that means lot of moolah as i need to change my alloys too because i won't settle for anything less than 14"

And, yes planning to get the CAI done shortly

if you are looking for a real nice and more precise handling why not get the 15" @ 50 profile, you will just love it trust me on that!
