    First timer looking for some K&N advice

    Hi all, first time poster (and Astra owner) here looking for some guidance on K&N air boxes.

    I have recently been gifted a 2008 AH SRi (naturally aspirated) and am hoping to do some minor mods to it. First up, I'm looking to change out the air box to a K&N something-or-other, but am getting too much conflicting info on what actual parts the car will accept.

    On the K&N page, if I select 2008 AH Astra as the model, I really only get the replacement panel filter. If I change it to 2008 Opel Astra H I get a number of different options including the aftermarket air box and filter.

    In a long winded way my question is.....am I safe in ordering the Opel Astra H parts for my Holden Astra?

    Alternatively, of anyone can suggest any other air box upgrades that will suit I'd be happy to look at them 😊

    Save your money on the k&n.

    a better option for you is the intake scoop.

    If this is still avalible you could make it fit into yours

    Tight fit perhaps? Genuinely have no real idea at the moment but have heard many good things about the pipercross

    As Guy said, save your cash cause if it's for performance, you wouldn't notice a thing. Go for the larger intake instead and if the standard airboxes can be derestricted just as with the Astra G srit, then that would be your best thing to do.
