    Re: Discovery 2 Td5 air filter conversion

    Can you not get a good second-hand standard airbox from one of the places that have scrap Disco 2's like British 4x4?

    If the price is too good to be true it's more likely that they are stolen, time expired stock (old) before being knock off tyres. My money would be on the first option. Check the date of manufacture...
