I use K&N oil and air filters on all of my cars. I sometimes cruise eBay for my particular part numbers, and sometimes get lucky and score a K&N HP series filter that fits my junk for under $10 shipped. This time I found an HP-1004, that fits my Optima and would also work on the wifeís Capri convertible, and if Iím feeling extra hotrod-like, also fits the zero turn mower. I won it for $1 plus $5 shipping, no big deal, and it arrived today in a non padded envelope. The box was torn up pretty good, but hey... itís a K&N. Itís thick and strong and can get tossed around a bit and be ok. I open the box up and find a dented up Fram PH3593A. Well nuts. If it wasnít all dented up I would have just chalked it up to experience and used it on the zero turn. But I donít use dented filters. Oh well. Live, learn, and experience stuff. That is all. Feel better now that Iíve shared my $6 lesson. Good day folks.

There comming...............

You need to hang around here more. I wonít go into the quality issue of the k&n filters but 6 bucks is no bargain. Especially when you could get one on an oil change special for that much without much effort.


Sparks fly from my fingers.

Emailed the seller and explained. Politely asked for a refund. Weíll see how it goes.

Just a "data point" question.

You're in Indianapolis....from HOW FAR AWAY did the dented Fram come?

That's all...just the distance. Thx

There is a process to get your refund through ebay. Highly recommend that route. Plus you should get a full refund that way, not a buck. But not thinking you'd have much luck dealing direct anyway with a seller that puts a Fram in the package for a KN Filter listing.

Take a picture of filter with envelope and use "return" on your auction. You'll have the $6 back.

Not a big fan of K&N filters after one I cut open for a friend and I found it had failed.
