PostSubject: Air filter upgrade   Air filter upgrade Empty18th July 2013, 22:01

I am thinking of upgrading the air filter on the JCW and would like some advice. I don't want to go too mad as the car is still under warranty. I've had a look online and there's just so many options out there its all a bit baffling as they all claim to do different things. The one I'm tending to prefer at the moment is the one from ITG.

But any advice, recommendations or experiences would be really helpful.

I paid around £42 for my ITG pro filter from Lohen at the MINI festival. R53 version though so I assume the R56 version will be of a different design?

Do these filters do much? Are they noisy? I had a neuspeed on my old Cupra and it was so noisy it became annoying

The itg filter from Lohen, is it the same across N14s and N18s, Cooper S and JCW?
