Are these the right airfilter and cabin filters for a 2001?

They both say they are for 986 Boxster but I just want to make sure.

Most likely the top one. The 986 filter is NOT a rectangle shape, it's got a 'cleft' corner like the top one.

Oh... duh... the bottom one is the CABIN (air conditioning) filter. The top one is the ENGINE air filter.

Yes but are these the right ones? Seems awfully cheap, I was just at the dealer today asking about prices and was quoted $170 for air filter + oil filter + cabin filter + crush washer!

The cabin air filter comes in two styles, the cheap clear one you have illustrated and the more expensive OEM charcoal activated version filter.

Check on Pelican Parts.

IIRC, the engine air filter is about $20, and the cabin filter is about $40. The crush washer for the oil plug is about $2, and the oil filter should be around $20.
