    Air Filters

    Hi,

    I'm looking to put an air filter on my audi but wondered if anyone can recommend one to buy. I had one previously but was advised to take it off as it blew my air mass flow meter due to oil in the foam being drwn into the meter????

    Thanks!

    the standard paper filters are fine as long as there changed regularly

    failing that i've had a pipercrosss foam panel filter in my A3 for just under a year with no problems whatsoever - you just have to be careful how much oil you apply to it when you clean it.

    Realistically, the audi paper filters are fine, you could do a cold air feed but it requires quite a bit more work, a few members have done them (might be worth a search).
