Ive asked a company called powertec to make me one, there pretty good like that so fingers crossed they will say yes! They did one for one of my bfs old cars, as there a dry filter (no oil) it shouldnt mess up the maf sensor as alot of modern cars suffer from this as the air isnt as dry as it should be.......oh and powertec sound really good.

They do universal ones, im hoping they say that the 1.4 corsa filter will fit.

Keep me posted on the panel filter!
I'm also read somewhere that a corsa panel filter will fit as they are the same engines.
I've ordered my Adam but won't get it to June so I'm stocking up on goodies to fit!

Ive gone from the 1.4 stop/start, i swapped cars because i had a boxster and it was daft on petrol really just for driving to work and back, so dont want it to be a pocket rocket that drinks alot haha x

87bhp? I've gone for the Adam slam 1.4 100bhp. My fiesta wasn't bad on petrol if I drove it normally. Not that bad either if I had a heavy right foot x

Oh no i got the 100 slam aswell. My old one was awful on fuel however you drove, expensive tax and insurance aswell, i figure il be saving 拢140 a month on those alone, so adams figures make it a wise move.....i hope x

There ment to add a little bhp, but they dont add anything youwill notice really, they do make the engine sound a bit more throaty and less silent.

So they make it sound a bit sporty, if its the same engine as my Corsa I can hardly tell the engine is running and sometime turn the key again and it make as funny noise lol.
Beavv, looks like you have got allot of extra kit to pimp your Adam! I also have ready, White LED number plate lights & Night Breaker H7's (but will upgrade to HIDs at some point). I want to get chrome plate surrounds!

I think they're a faux leather. Don't think they are a real leather but I could be wrong.

When I test drove a slam in yellow it felt the same as the steering wheel trim so it could possibly be real leather

Anyone got a picture they can upload of the engine bay?
I might be able to find a CAI for the ADAM.
