Default Active Carbon Cabin Filters

When I was searching information about cabin air filters, I came across this link about "Bosch: Active Carbon Cabin Filters": Bosch - Filters (please scroll down to end of the page)

I would like to know if anyone has used this type of air filter and does it really help in improving the quality of air coming into the cabin (in fresh air mode) while driving in congested city traffic.

Mods: I searched Team-BHP on this topic, could not find any threads on it, hence decided to create a new thread. If there is any existing thread about this subject, kindly point me to the same.

I have bought this product and fitted it in my SX4. Got it from a dealer in Bangalore who offered a 40% discount from MRP. I paid about Rs. 1060 for it. The guy actually delivered it to my house!

Fitting it was a simple task, took just 5 minutes.

As for the experience:

1. They say it is "perfumed" but could not detect any perfume
2. Reduces AC blower airflow by ~10% (my best guess)
3. Almost completely eliminates outside odours and in-car odours
4. I am assuming that it is equally good in trapping dust and pollen
5. I can literally drive in Bangalore city traffic with the AC vent open and hardly get any exhaust fume odours or other nasty smells inside the car

They say it is to be replaced annually. It's well worth the investment.

Does he sell loose parts? or do we have to give the car for servicing?
