    It depends what you're fitting it for:

    If it's for performance then the simple answer is don't bother. When the Pipercross one 1st came out all the diesel boys jumped on it. Result - It offered zero gains!

    If you're fitting it as a reusable filter to save costs in the long term then go ahead.

    I was thinking more in terms of a reuseable filter with a little more noise.
    Do you know if the intake pipe to the air box is restrictive?

    The aftermarket diesel air filters make Zero gains on your I-CTDI car. It a FI car you will not see massive gains . The stock air box designed by Honda is already tweaked for the maximum air flow and power. A few year back a guys did a test with conical K&N filter and the power loss was huge reverted back to stock and power was restored.

    Best advise keep it stock.
