hey dude....
didnt see ur reply - to many threads with new replies...lol...
its ok... u can get ur stock size filter - go to Golden car accessories in sharjah, sharjah has alot of crap- BUT - u should know wht ur looking for. those guys themselves dont know wht their selling.so as u reach there- remove ur stock filter n take it into the Shop.... they will get one for u , im sure.
Ramy is another place tht u would get a filter for ur car, but not worthid spending more than 100 bucks on those guys for them Scratching their A***.... they charge alot more....
let me know ...if u got it

if u remove tht stock air pipe of urs ..... u will get a bit of hp gain , n the noise u want will happen too....
im sure u will get the intake pipe...for ur car... have u checked with golden car ? theres tht other place, its the shop next to the old golden car shop...its a small place.but thts where i visit alot.

not worth fitting a cone filter to ur stock.ur stock is thinner , so i guess it woudnt do so good....
