comment Is there a way to check if you're being ripped off for accident repair costs?
You can't. There are too many variables and they're too specific to your situation (including the local legal posture). That's why this question is likely to be closed as too localized / shopping advice.

@Anarach, Rory is still right. It depends on the specific application.

comment Do I need to reprogram ECU when adding custom Air filter
Your conclusion isn't true for all engines. WRX motors are known for running too lean with some intakes. That's bad in a forced induction engine. You either get too much air (possible detonation) or the ECU panics and adds to much fuel (too rich = lower power and worse emissions). The engine will be fine within some bounds but if you exceed them, you need a tune.

Some more information would help: what kind of noise? When the car is hot or cold? Does the sound change at different speeds?

comment Unknown part fell out of my motorcycle
@neanderslob, no judgment here. I have to secure all kinds of cables all the time and I've made much dumber choices than a couple of hair spin pins!
