Today I got OEM Guard filters for Honda City 2009 & beyond model.These are Air filter cost only Rs: 320/- & Oil filter Rs: 210/- .At Honda workshop OEM Air-filter Rs:1280/- & Oil-filter Rs: 980/-I saved 2260-530= 1730 rupees. If I change (as condition depend) air-filter after 5000 km and oil-filter after 5000 km (absolutely) my saving is double than workshop provided filters. Pictures for reference as following;
OEM Air Filters are same or better quality?
OEM filters are of Guard or Qaim
guard is the only trusted local filter brand. using it for 12+years. it is a great saving
the filters you get from the 3S dealer ship gives you better fuel economy and lasts longer I have tested them
Try to get these Guard filters from Metro cash n carry stores. They sell original filters.
Guard filters r not oem
These r local made
Orignal r made in thailand or japan
nice share, thanx!
Brother, When I changed oil filter at 10,000 km I found it is Guard filter i.e. company fitted filter is of Guard company. surely the air filter is of Thailand made but it runs only 15000 km (company manual says 40,000 km) So why not use Guard filter, change it on 10,000 km and price is 1/3.
For reference please note the part/article number on Guard filter box, Thanks.
Brother, Original air filter is wet (Oil Sprayed) and Guard is dry filter. Honda technicians said wet filter do not allow a single dust particle to go into the protected area which is very sensitive. Choice is yours whether to take risk or not.
Very intersting is that Guard air filter is also wet. I survey the market dry filter cost just 200/-
oil is still usable for air only original one should be used. better economy and performance
I can't understand your point?
Salam,good and intelligent choice. Gurad is OEM for honda so dont worry.
The Honda engine is just like any other engine.
Not some 'very sensitive' speciality in the engine.
They are simply ripping off people.
If your not okay wiht Guard, get ViC oil filter which is far better than the 'OEM' stuff Honda sells.
which oil are u using b.t.w and for how much mileage?i use imported oil filter for 350 rupees.
There are also qualities in Guard. So check them before you buy. Alot of 2 no stuff is in the market
