Exclamation K&N Dealer in Bangalore

You can get K&N Filters for almost all cars and bikes from the main distributer OzzOne in Bangalore. Contact person is Mr. Damodar

It better not to install the filter during the rainy season. Chances of getting water inside is there which will spiol the filter. If stock replacement, then its fine.

Looks like teh same setup as in Shuhaib's car. But, his K&N was picking up too much of dust and hot air in that location ( is teh air con fan/ or so on teh left side? ) and he wanted to change teh location...

I did not find any issues in terms of dust or hot air picking up. After KN filter being fitted, I had taken my car for a long drive, Its one of the dusty roads that I had taken my swift out, Bangalore - Malavalli - Shivanasamudra and back.

Methods Automotive - From last 4 months they are saying that the stock replacement K&N filters are available in 2 weeks, but still no sign, thats the reason I went in for XStream filters.

Plumbing cost me around Rs. 1600/-

Stock replacement K&N for the swift has been released . Just got mine yesterday from Sound Factor on Vittal Mallya Rd (next to the JBL showroom). Did notice a slight improvement in the low end.Will keep posted.

Cheers

Default k&n

hey all
i have been using K&N for quite some time now and i feel that it really adds to the power of the car.

but i think the fuel efficiency is not improved. off course i pull my car a lot due to which i dont get a good average.

but all in all a good buy
