$30 for the cabin filter for my car. If I like it, then I'll take advantage of the FCP euro lifetime guarantee program, to minimize my costs.

Not liking the 10,000 mile change interval. It's earlier than the Bosch recommendation for their filter.

Might be great if you're COPD or a person with chronic asthma but at over $30 dollars a shot the average person doesn't need this even if its as good as they claim.

A filter is one thing but some of us may be missing the point that a cars A/C systems or fresh air system is certainly not "HEPA", I mean....it's in an automobile with clunky clamps on ducting etc. How efficient can the system be in particulate handling and sealing?


Just put the friggin' Maxlife in and be done with it!

Man, how did we all survive over the years before cabin filters.

Cabin filters keep the condenser and heater core clean, as well as all the duct work. They keep the inside of my car from matching the outside during NC pollen season.

If you suffer from allergies, the filters DO help.

Tough guys can feel free to toss the CAF in the trash, but I'm thankful for mine.

I've been impressed with the CORTECO products I've purchased.

I couldn't agree more. It seems that as I age, I've become more sensitive to air quality. I wouldn't buy a vehicle now without HVAC filtering.

I've been eyeing that because my CAF is due for a change in a couple of months, but changing the filter on my 4-series is a royal PITA because of risk of breaking the interior trim piece underneath the glove box.

Opening and closing the door for ingress/egress and blasting pine pollen into your eyes and all over your interior for 100 miles a day are not the same thing.

It's funny, my last trip overseas proved the effectiveness of the CAF. Our newest Hilux was easy to keep clean on the inside. It would accumulate dust, but it was easily wiped away. The older one, (without CAF) was impossible to keep clean. It always had a nice coating of dust on everything, and wiping it up was futile. An extreme example in an extreme environment, but they are effective.

If they weren't, they wouldn't catch anything.

They have a Mann Frecious for my car so I may get that from them. I'm also due to buy rotors and pads and fluids so thanks for the reminder about their lifetime warranty!

Intrigued....

Any numbers on this beside price? filtering ability / pressure drop anything.

Between the house in LA being in a high particle count area (1/3 mile from 405/ 10 intersection) ,
- and fire/ wood burning season in the sierras, its an issue for me continuously and worth the small premium.

All I can find on cortecos site was german.

Thanks
