I get soon my Mini Cooper S Cabrio. I wanted a JCW but unfortunately JCW doesn't offer automatic gearbox. :-(
I would like to buy the JCW air filter for my Mini Cooper S. Do you feel the difference? Is it much better than the stock air filter?
Thank you in advance

Are you referring to the Stage 1 cone filter?
If you are, then no there's not much difference, not only in terms of performance but also in terms of noise.
Money is better spent elsewhere.

What model MCS Cab are you getting r52 supercharged or r57 Turbo charged if you let us know we can advise you on what is best :-)
What ever model it is you will love it good luck

To be honest I have no idea which model I have. I ordered my Mini two weeks ago. It is a Mini Cooper S. It must be the latest version. It will arrive in December 2011. ;-)
We have quite a strict law in Switzerland, so I cannot have a super air filter. :-(

I am new to this forum cause just bought a used 2005 mini cooper s JCW recently. I am sorry if I am in the wrong section. and sorry to interrupt the thread starter for asking this question.
I was informed that it had just been serviced in May but not sure what kind of service it was(oil change or interim or full). I am just curious what should I do with the car cause I havent had any inspection prior to buying it. So I dont really know which parts should I replace in case they are worn out.
Today, a friend of mine wanna sell his madness JCW intake high flow air filter for 30 pound. Is it necessary and is the price offered cheap? I really dont have any clue what should I start with to make sure the car will run smoothly for the future.
Is it a recommended thing to start with (changing the air filter)?? If it does, is the madness air filter good??? I heard ITG is more famous. I am just confused right now. hope you guys can help a bit. cheers
