Need urgent advice - Drop-in Air Filter for R56 Mini Cooper (Non-S)

Hi guys,

Do take a look at the attached photo of my engine bay. It seems like there isn't an aftermarket drop-in air filter that fits my airbox, i.e. located above main engine and elongated.

Any experts can advise on any decent existing available aftermarket drop-in air filter?

Tks!

Alby

That is a strange looking airbox. Mine doesn't look like that at all. What year is your Cooper?

Mini Mania has a long, narrow K&N filter that they say is for 'non-usa' cars.

Maybe this is it? If not, they may be able to help guide you.

That looks like it's European version of the airbox. I have a few of the ITG filters for that box, but anything else is hard to find for it.

Hi Way,

Can the DDM Works Air Intake Kit (avail on your site) fit my ride?

Anyway, how much are those ITGs that you have? PM me?

Tks!

Thanks pal. Guess I ordered a part meant for the US versions. Sigh.

Very old thread, but in case someone is looking for that one -

Pep Boys tried to give me that one for my car, and I knew it wasn't the right one - waaay too long, and looked to me like a cabin air filter. $22 from Purolator and they stock it at all the stores so it must fit something else common.
