    only,i just purchased one for my motor off ebay
    its arrived all ok but there is no mention of it being pre-oiled on the box
    asked the seller a question,but he doesnt believe in aftersales service it seems
    are these air filters plug n play or will i need to buy the aerosol dirt retention additive?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    IIRC they come pre-oiled. I had one on my old Volvo T5.
    Dunno if this will help Mark

    It should only be a very slight residue, if it was dripping then you wouldn't want to be fitting it

    I think it just makes it easier to keep clean

    It also helps the filter catch even finer particles of dust and stuff you dont want going into the engine!

    In the air filter box, the same place as the standard filter WAS fitted, you just replace the standard item for the Pipercross
