I decided to change the cabin filter in my '08. as it was the original with 10.8k miles. I couldn't find it at Wallmart or Autozone, so I went to a dealer. Of course they had to order one, and when I picked it up they charged me 40 bucks! I think that's outrageous for a piece of crap flimsy piece of paper. That's all folks, thanks for letting me vent.:soapbox:

Just out of curiosity, I looked up the part at GMPartshouse:

C6 Corvette Replacement Filters

15861929 – Air compartment filter – $24.01
This is the premium charcoal impregnated filter.

$40 would pizz me off too. I think I paid about $15 at a local autozone. Took 2 days as they had to order it. They are crappy little filters compared to the 3M ones I use in the house and cost wayyyy less.

Got a Purolator at Pep Boys for $17 that was a better constructed filter (and carbon infused) than the OEM unit or the NAPA filter that was $24. Do not buy the NAPA filter! Flimsy "frame" and very difficult to get it into the filter slot without it wanting to accordian-up on you.

This reminds me that I probably need to change mine. Maybe I'll wait a couple weeks as pollen season is just starting here and put a clean filter after that.

Paid less than 15 bucks for mines. It pays to shop around.

:iagree::rofl::smilielol5:c6vette, can you reveal your source? vettex2, would you care to share how you made yours? Thanks.
Well I just cut some thin foam for the area under the hood and laid it in.
It's different , a C5 doesn't come with a filter or a real place to install one.
You just lay it in place on top of the cabin air intake.

After looking at a C6 filter online , it looks like an air filter or a vac. cleaner filter.

When I hear about another Vette owner going elsewhere for replacement parts, and by elsewhere I mean other than the stealerships, I get more psyched to shop around for anything and everything automobile-related. Thanks for sharing, guys. :cheers:

Another vote for the Purolator cabin filter here; got it @ Advance Auto Parts after a 24 wait for it to come from their "warehouse". It seemed well made and fit into my 2008 coupe well w/o having to "jam it in" as some have reported.
Enjoy,
