Pompous A$$ Gets Schooled @ Bus Depot

I deleted a rant from the New York New Heads thread where I excoriated Mann for their new thinner air filter that cost twice as much as our full size Mahle, thinkinging that it was cheap-skating. Well, Fred Vandegrift set me straight ....
LX220 is for a Type 4 BUS
The C2290 is for the 411/412

No problem, I wouldn't have known either if it wasn't for the Mann specs, it's not like you see a 411 every day. :-) Let me know how you want to handle the exchange.

Hello Fred,
So, the 411/412 actually has a smaller profile filter?
It is painful the things I do not yet know.
My apologies.

Why delete the rant(s)?
I like 'em. I had no idea there was a thinner 411 filter.
How am I to build my knowledge of VW esoterica if you don't pop off every once in awhile?

a) Yeah, me neither.

b) Well, you must have a remarkable knowledge base by now re:

My mother had a plaque in the kitchen that said:

Keep your words soft and sweet
Just in case you have to eat them


Bravo for putting education before ego.
When thousands of people believe a made-up story for a month, we call it fake news. When a billion people believe a made-up story for a thousand years, we call it a religion.
