What kinda air filter on a 97 geo metro sedan

my friend just got one and i found out she has a fuel injected metro so the it's a drop in filter and it's nasty it looks like this
Google Image Result for http://di1.shopping.com/images/di/68/2d/50/437a47424368776f424b47386b544c76374267-100x100-0-0.jpg

all i'm seein for replacements is K&N's like this

Why not just run to the local autoparts store and get whatever they have on the shelf?

i went and they asked if i wanted that K&N one but from the looks of it i believe it's bigger than the stock filter on that because this one is in a lil airbox on the side as opposed to up top like i see most of the metros have

Really? That's a 1989-1994 Suzuki Swift GT (or GTi) DOHC engine.

Are you sure it's not a '98 Metro with the SOHC 16V engine? I think it's the same filter either way.

Uhm it may be the 98 metro but one is a 9 inch wide filter and the other is like a 4 or 5 inch wide filter i think
