As part of track day prep I figured a “performance” air filter might be a nice addition to the Alfa. It has not gone well.

The first filter I ordered went OK, until the seller contacted me and said they “inspected” the item and “found damage” and don’t have a replacement available. This is eBay speak for “we don’t actually stock anything we sell and we had a harder time than expected getting one.”

That order was canceled and I ordered another from eBay. And it was delivered yesterday!

Ok so I assume either they gave me the wrong tracking info, or managed to ship some rando a filter for an Alfa Spider. Looking back through their feedback history the latter seems more probable, as there are a lot of “wrong item sent,” “wrong tracking sent” and “item sent to wrong address” entries.

Hooray.

So I guess I’m sticking with paper as there is a very low probability that I can get a new filter in time. Also I have little business spending $85 on an air filter so... heh.
