Bosch does not have carbon cabin filters in stock, I have an Oxy-Pure type. This filter is not of the stock size and does not fit correctly in the Pollen Filter module, the length is shorter by an inch, but still I went a head and fixed it as I could not bear the stock filter.

I am unsure, if the size of the filter could be the reason; In general, the Bosch Pollen Filter does not allow any odors, but at times, it allows smoke odors from trucks and the filter itself gives strange smell during compressor cut off (Unsure why, may be due to dry air?).

Puneet(pk_del) from team-bhp is also using the Bosch Oxy-Pure filter, his filter is of the same size as stock one. We could ask him for a review.

I had called Bosch yesterday, you had provided the number for Ashok. He said they are out of stock on the filters and to give him a buzz next week.

I went on shopping spree this weekend and found activated carbon filter is shaped like a pentagon. Is this right or a spurious chinese ripoff ?

It will not serve its purpose since it will let in dust and smoke over its shoulders.

Bosch and other after market manufacturers like ZIP have Pollen Filter/AC filter for Dzire, I am certainly not sure if they would have active carbon filters in stock for DZire. Innova has an in stock active carbon filter from Bosch in Bosch car care.

That guy said, that the pentagon shaped stuff will fit my DZire. Since I have already tinkered with A/C of my car, I was able to call his bluff. Any idea where can I get it from a Bosch authorized auto spare parts shop in Hyderabad / Secunderabad ?

Yes, most likely all passenger Pollen Filter modules will be a square or rectangle, a misfit can potentially allow harmful gases and dust into the cabin, it can also permanently damage your vents. I do not know a place in hyd, if it is blr i could have helped you. For instance have a look at my Punto's pollen filter module.

Looks very similar in design with DZire. Any idea if you can find the evaporator coil from the fan end ? In DZire the coil is little higher than the lowest point in the plumbing. If its accessible in Punto, you are one lucky guy.
