Indica airfilter housing is not a good design. If you are not careful, its easy to damage the filter while taking it out. I guess thats what happened at the service center, and they causally hid the problem, thinking that how will the user find out, and next service they will replace it under routine replacement, and thus need not give you a free air filter.

tsk, are you talking about the NA indica's airbox , the one which is sandwiched sideways between the battery and the engine ? That might be a bit hard to deal with, but in my case , its pretty easy to remove. I've taken it out several times, and the thought of damaging it didnt even occur to me. I thought it might have happened when the mechanics were banging it somewhere to clean it . God forbid what would have happened if I'd run several thousand km with that filter - And I'm someone who thinks even K&N's are too dirty

this is what my engine bay looks like ( pic courtesy teknophobia)

My engine bay looks like this for only the first 2000 kms after servicing. was this photo taken after a service or this is how it looks always. I replace the air filter at every 5k servicing costs Rs280+ taxes.
