GTV PiperX AirFilter - Doesn't Fit !!

Right - First things First MERRY XMAS fellow Alfa Fans !!!

Santa brought me a Pipercross Replacement Airfilter (CPX1364) but he had to use Mr Demon Tweeks to deliver it 'cos his Elves were too busy....

Anyway - went to fit it this morning... and its too long.... (about 25mm)..

Its Bright, its Red, it looks lovely - but it Don't fit on my 2000 2.0TS... !!! eek!

Anyway - Am I mad?? Am I missing something???

I have to fit the Bottom Cowl and Top Plate to the Filter assembly and its just too long...

I've sent an email to Autodelta to find out about their 'remarkably similar' filter but I just wanted to gather some opinions / know if anyone else has had this... D/T have said I can return it for a full refund...

Also - what K&N or GreenCotton Options have I got... I've read the posts about AirFlow Meters going belly up but think if its oiled properly (with no "extra") it shouldn't be a problem...

Preference is to carry on using the Air Box as is... (not really after a Rip Roaring Sound at the Mo...) but I'm open to your comments / suggestions... (Part numbers / links too please if you start specifying)

Oh - finally - whats the additional (baffle?) box do in the system - is it a noise thing; and if so can I bypass it??

Thats enough questions... Cheers..
