Default cabin filters

Hi guys. I've started to look around for cabin filters for my ti. Would anyone here know if our filter is the same as another make/model? Like if a Lexus something has the same filter as a Ford that would be the same as ours. I did a cross reference but it came up with company names not a make/model. Thanks

I highly doubt it. Nearly every 318ti part is unique. You can buy them new for $8 each with free shipping ($16 a set)
Check out ebay, here is a link to one, but plenty of people sell them for that price.

Just keep in mind that while they may "fit"... the cheap ones might not snap into the holder. I had to use wire to keep mine in place.

I bought the cheap ones off eBay and had that issue. I was able to bend them to get them to stay but it took a while for them to stay there and not fall out.

I found that Mann #cu10062 is a replacement for ours but I have not confirmed it yet.
