K&N Air Filter

Has anyone put a K&N air filter in their JCW? I'm thinking of putting one in my 2011 JCW. I usually put them in all my cars, but I wanted to check here first to see if anyone had any feedback on them in the JCW.

No problem here with them or with BMC oiled filters(factory on my JCW sound kit, just make sure you oil them correctly and not over oil them. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-k-and-n-parts/v-mini/ Get the cleaning kit linked and wash them ever so often. Now the K&N motor oil filters you cannot reuse For those, you can use K&P filters.https://www.ecstuning.com/b-k-and-p-...-parts/v-mini/
