I own a Swift VXi with alloys and wider tyres. I have not heard about simota air filters before. I am planning to go for K&N filter. How does simota air filter compare with K&N?

Are there dealers in Chennai for simota?

And ... what other air filters are in the market and which is the best in terms of performance and budget?

simota airfilters are good but i donth think they would fare well in indian conditions.instead of a cotton mesh like in the case of a k&n ,the simota has a stainleass steel mesh.no cotton,no filtering media...the filtering is done via a very fine ss mesh...so u figure how helpful will taht be.

This should be an intresting thread.....Btw alloys,etc dont account for modded cars.
As for me....I dont qualify....still living in the boring world of STOCK!

My OHC VTEC has a free flow setup with straight-through pipe and a chip to boost the power. Alongwith that it also has wider tyres than standard.

More details can be found here:

apart from upsized footwear, my OHC has a free-flow setup with headers (automech). coming up next is a k&n filter.
