    I cannot seem to find a definitive answer to this when searching via Google...

    I replaced the air filters on both sides myself - does the car need to be advised via STAR that these have been replaced ?

    Have got a MBII and there is no option in this to perform this - when looking online, some sites seem to suggest that the unit can do this, but don't mention this as an option (MBII is at latest s/w version)

    A like for like replacement shouldn't require anything re-setting.

    Just plug and play basically.

    Thanks for confirming - the only reason I ask is that the car does not seem as responsive when you put your foot on the accelerator, seems to take a bit longer before it picks up speed i.e. turbo kicks in

    Maybe in my head though !
