Description Videos Reviews Here is a Cabin Filter that fits and work just like the factory OE unit, but as better cost for you! We stock cabin filters for your MINI to make sure they fit and help your mini smell great. They are the high end charcoal activated filter. Not only does it filter dust, dirt, leaves, & bugs; it also filters any unwanted smell! It's a simple install under the dash on the passenger side of the car. Just see how the old one comes out, and put the new one in the same way. We recommend changing them out once a year or every 30,000 miles. It all depends on where you drive and how much you drive. Cars that stay outside more can get mice in there, so it's good to check it (keep the re-circulation on to close the door so they can't get in!). Cars that are driven on dirt roads also tend to dirty faster, as well as ones in major cities. So pull yours out from time to time and check it out! Note: Keep in mind what years are Gen 1 and Gen 2. Here is a handy chart to help. The Gen 1 filters are here!
