I only just fitted the front ones this afternoon, when I took the photos, and have not driven the car since.
With the air purifier filter though, we had noticed that if we turned it up to high then the smell was distinct. It was tolerable on a low setting. Now, setting the air puri on high no longer makes things worse. I have not been in enough traffic to find out if it makes it better.
I am expecting that the normal slightly stale smell in the car will go with the new fronts.
If not, I have a barely used bottle of Boss handy...
It is often harder to pick the absence of something rather than its presence and this is highly subjective but, regardless, I think the car felt fresher, especially when I got back in to it after the first drive around.
Peter Burrett Tinkerer How about allowing the few of us to say ST?
Yes, I mentioned the different part numbers in my first post, in the archive to this thread. It may be bad news, unless you are telling me you have managed to get one for your car. If so, I think some other people might love to know where and at what price.
Nice wheel cover there. Why haven't I got one of those?? Why is your fuel tank black? The side bits to your wheel well have one compartment each where mine has two. Little differences.

No, I haven't found a new one. I took the old one out and washed it. Probably destroyed any filtering properties left, but at least it's clean. The wheel cover came with the car. I thought all petrol tanks were black.
