If you have the JCW Cold Air Intake kit in your MINI, this is a High Quality re-usable Performance Filter upgrade. A direct replacement for your JCW Cold Air Intake kit in your JCW equipped MINI.
Fits the following MINIs WITH the JCW Cold Air Intake:
2002-2006 R53 MINI Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper S Convertible
NOTE: Check to make sure your JCW intake has the 'cylindrical filter' and not the flat panel filter. This is not a 'conversion' kit.
This re-usable Performance Cotton Filter has a much larger 'Effective Surface Area' which result in lower face velocities, increased efficiency, and provides greater airflow. This filter offers 15% less restriction when compared to the stock paper element filter.
A dirty air filter lowers your gas mileage. Change this filter once a year or more often if you drive in a dusty environment.
For the 2007+ R56 Cooper S Hatchback, 2008+ R55 Cooper S CLUBMAN, and 2009+ R57 Cooper S Convertibles with JCW Intake, see G2NME4517.
See Filter Maintenance Kit to care for this filter.
