I got the K&N for my 2009 Mini Cooper S. Great price from K&N directly and it was shipped and delivered quickly. EASY installation and took all of 5 minutes. I'm a happy camper and good for 50K miles before needing cleaning.
Installation was very easy and only took about 20 minutes. One area needs improvement regarding fit. The metal replacement for the top of the air box should have thicker tabs to fit the back of the lower portion of the air box. Either thicker tabs or slip on spacers would help. My unit had a rattle at idle from the tabs vibrating in the lower air box so I built my own spacers which cured the rattle.
From a performance perspective I couldn't really determine a power increase through seat of the pants evaluation. Fuel mileage has stayed the same as it was. I'm using this unit on a Mini Cooper S Roadster and I consistently get 37 to 40 MPG and I don't baby the car. I also have a Quicksilver exhaust system installed.
The intake sound is very good and the blow off on the turbo is more noticeable than stock.
Overall, I'm satisfied with the purchase.
My first experience with K&N was a filter on my 1990 Porsche Carrera 4. It was new then and I was a chronic participant in both Road-Race-Tracks and Autocross. I installed the K&N Filter on the suggestion of a fellow driver and the results were immediately noticeable. This incredible machine accepted the filter as if it were OEM. I proceeded to the regional championship in autocross for 2 years.
I now own a 2002 Mini Cooper S. This afternoon I installed a K&N Typhoon Air handling system and once again, the difference was immediate and very noticeable.
I am a tried and true K&N user and fan, as proven over the years. It's a bit mind blowing to get this much improvement from a reasonably priced product.
Thanks K&N for making my driving experience better than it already was.
