Pollen filter
« on: December 16, 2017, 07:52:55 am »
Hi guys

Besides ebay and trademe I have been trying to source a pollen filter locally in Auckland. Ripco are over $100.00 which is a bit steep. Is there any where else I can try preferably on the north shore side.
Thanks

Really? for a cabin filter? Only around 35 from the main dealer.

Bought one from VW Tristram $53.00 including gst. Thanks for the advice I thought the agents would be expensive which is why I never tried them. Some parts are still reasonably priced with them.

And yet you went to repco, where we KNOW everything is expensive  ;)

If you willing to wait you can always order one off good old Aliexpress. $20 gets you a carbon filter delivered to your door.

careful with repco/supercheap, I've found air filters, oil filters and oil to be cheaper straight from the dealer
