    Aftermarket (i.e re-usable) Pannel Filters.. 2.0 TDI

    Hi Guys,

    Done a lot of digging around on the net, and it seems that a K&N Pannel Filter would mess up my MAF dispite there being an article on the K&N website saying otherwise (obviously). Is it true that the oil they are sprayed with will kill my MAF?

    Any benefits over the stock ones? I read that they improve response and mpg marginally?

    Cheers!

    Not too fussed about a remap really, would put my insurance up to an even more ridiculous price unfortunately!

    List goes...

    06+ Front and rear bumpers (both mine are knackered)
    '11 rear lights (but would get 09's if I found some second hand)
    Cupra Splitter
    Slight rear tints
    Double Din Conversion
    RNS-E to replace the crappy flip out DVD
    S Line Steering Wheel
    Cluster with DIS
    Refurb wheels/new wheels
    De-Wiper
    Gloss black rear badge


    And thats without all the other bits that are tatty/annoying

    Would benefit from a respray, ridiculous amount of swirls + few scratches/chips. Front end may as well be white with all the stone chips.
    Carpet as mine has a hole in it under the front mat
    Black roof lining + Pillars
    Arm Rest clip snapped
    Glovebox light mech. snapped.

    Etc... :P

    But I do about 500 miles a week, so its being run into the ground too much in that department to worry! Next car will be in addition to this one, once my insurance is more affordable

    Car looks nice

    How did you do your front grill surrounds?
    Was it sprayed or vinyl wrapped?
    Is it gloss black or Matt?

    Looking to do mine soon

    Thanks dude! It's a bit of a mash up at the moment

    The surrounds are Vinyled in Gloss black, was fairly easy to do The badge currently is just black plastic, but need to get a gloss black one to match asap. Doesn't make much odds when the cars dirty and looks matt black anyway though!

    lol my cars a mess at the moment aswell!

    it had a run in with a fox.
    my front bumper needs a respray and thought might aswell do the grill.

    Was thinking of keeping the audi badge silver but looking at yours has changed my mind....

    Yeah I keep toying with the idea. Gloss black ones are only about 15 on ebay though so could always get one and chop and change

    My ones started going manky anyway, along with the surround so thats the only reason I did it really!
