Just phoned Drive VX and they want 28.08 for the Carbon Activated Pollen Filter 93165208 and 24.66 for an Air Filter 91149684.

Does anyone know of any cheaper options that work as good?

The Carbon one is designed for Facelift Omega's, you should fit the Carbon one if yours is a FL.

You might as well get the filters from Eurocarparts, I paid 13.74 for a Carbon pollen filter and an engine air filter delivered to my door  :y

*look out for "Flash sales" I used a 50% discount code, never order without a code!

If you order a carbon Mann one from euroshite/cp4l, ensure its new - the one they sent me was full of grass, dust, cobwebs and other shite ;D

S'pose I should be grateful they actually sent it...

Whether or not they come out of the same factory or group of companies, the filters are different.

I got exactly the same deal up until I got to the checkout, then I got an error message every time I tried to pay. After several attempts, I gave up!

Just read that Crossland was bought by Euro car parts, no development, no technical back up. Just the name. was purchased. So who knows what filters they are using.

Yes.
And they're indistinguishable from a Vauxhall one; same number and depth of pleats. Even the rubber surround is the same colour. For anyone that cares about such things.

I'll give them ago. It's been 4 years since the last filter change, way to long.

Actually for any Omega with Climate control, which happens to include all facelifts ;)

If you want something from ECP it's always worth checking on ebay. And sure enough........
Crossland carbon filter 50772038 direct from ECP = 13.49 with 33% discount = Net 9.03.
Same 50772038 filter from ECP ebay shop with free delivery or pickup at store = 8.79.
Same 50772038 filter from ebay alternative supplier with free delivery = 8.39.

ECP are also selling Maan branded 507720039 carbon filters for 30.99 - 33% = 20.76.
On ebay ECP are selling the exact same Maan 507720039 product for 11.19.

Maan are a well known manufacturer of filters.

Nope, only facelifts need the carbon type, the PFL/MFL lacks the air quality sensor.
