Air Filter Replacement Options


Recommended Posts

Time to replace my V6S air filter, the Lotus price is about £70 apparently!

Given that it is a Toyota-branded part anyway, is there any reason not to use this aftermarket equivalent? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Air-Filter-C26003-Mann-17801AD010-1780131120-A132E6324S-Top-Quality-Replacement-/332236032975

Or this perhaps: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/F026400188-BOSCH-AIR-FILTER-INSERT-S0188-FILTERS-AIR-BRAND-NEW-GENUINE-PART-/381656475982?_trksid=p2141725.m3641.l6368

Is there any particular benefit to the K&N option (these are oiled right? Not keen on that...) https://www.carparts4less.co.uk/search/508820891

I'm keen to avoid adding more noise in case it trips a limit on track somewhere (I can squeeze under for Bedford but it's close).

Hi, I’d just go with the original Toyota part which is about £27 from your local Toyota dealer. P/N is: 17801-31120.

here is my dirty old one...

Thanks Mario, TBH I'm going with the Bosch option as it's less than half the price of the Toyota part and should be the exact same spec. I'd be suspicious of an unknown brand, but Bosch should be pretty good stuff. My current filter looks very similar to your photo!
