Not great, there's more than a few problems with this.
There is no rubber seal between the filter and the rest of the air system which probably allows a reasonable amount of dirty air in.
The instructions are not good at all.
Doesn't really seem to fit in the car properly.
Also, the heatshield isn't much use at all.
The worst part is that it is clearly a used part! Not sure if this is a fault of mx5parts or pipercross but everything was scratched up and the filter had clearly already been fitted to a car before. Not the end of the world because the filter was perfectly clean and looked new so maybe it was fitted then immediately removed.
The good part is that once fitted it does sound better so does its job I suppose as long as the dirty air doesn't become a problem later on.
