However, I think it's only sensible that anybody interested in buying a set should check with the Club before parting with the cash.
Of course! :agree:

Hi Tom, The last time I went to a Ford dealer to check on stock levels of the white ones, the parts man told me that they had a new FINIS code. No problem I thought, until he brought out a black filter. It looks as though the white ones are obsolete now. I bought a box of 10 from a Ford main dealer...
