ALTA JCW Replacement Foam Filter

By using the same technology and manufacturing process we use for our Cold Air Intake systems we can offer you a superior filter for your JCW! This is a direct replacement for the aftermarket dealer supplied MINI Cooper JCW intake system. Finally you have a choice when replacing the stock filter. ALTA makes the best filtration technology available to you at a far more affordable price point vs the OEM replacement.

Two Piece Design

ALTA filters feature a unique two piece design allowing the user to remove the foam filter element for easy cleaning. Easily run the element under a faucet for cleaning and ring out by hand. Simply slip the foam sleeve back over the filter frame and your ready to go.

Open Cell Foam Element

ALTA foam filters are made of reticulated polyurethane foam which offers a minimal air restriction. The filter element is sprayed with a special oil that adheres to the foam making the poly matrix sticky to retain dirt. Foam filters do not block dirt, they grab it, suffering only minimal drops in air flow as they filter dirt, maintaining air flow levels when other filters would clog.

Clean and Protect

Remove months of oil and grime by simply spraying on this easy to use cleaner. Just let it sit on the filter element for a few moments and simply rise in the sink. Once your filter is dry, just spray on a fresh coat of oil and you are ready to go.

Filter Tech

Don't be fooled by K&N or dry filter hype when they claim to filter better and make more Horsepower or flow more air. It's the small details they are not telling you about that might steer you away from the filters. Learn more about Foam filters and Read Jeff's Blog.
