    I think he realised that, you put upgraded the panel filter. Do they come with a panel filter as standard???

    Re: anyone got a panel filter?

    ok sorry didnt really explain myself..

    yeah its an airfilter box with a panel filter inside...

    the question is, has anyone either replaced the standard panel filter or replaced the whole box for a induction kit. (Cylindrical air filter).. ?

    Re: anyone got a panel filter?

    ShaHeed - this 2.0 Tdi you've seen, which CDA Airbox does it have? EVO 1 or 2? Did it give a noticeable increase in power and torque cos I've read a lot recently about airboxes reducing bhp, which is the last thing i want!

    Is there a UK audi driver here that knows if these airboxes will pass the mot (when the day comes)?

    Re: anyone got a panel filter?

    I've tried contacting them, to no avail.

    I think as potential customers, we deserve dyno plots. Stage 1, 2 and 3. Video would be good as well.

    AMD, are you listening? If you want my 2500 pounds, show me some hard facts.

    i knew AMD did them but im on about not actually hearing of anyone having them fitted and tested.. ???

    whatever is available for the R32 should be available for the A3..

    Re: anyone got a panel filter?

    careful with the K&N panel for the V6...I bought one and i was the wrong size...shepish K&N chappie admitted they got it wrong....

    Also had the v6 up to K&N at Warrington to see if they could retreo fit the R32...but no as the "geometry" of the arir box is different and the engine bay temps are too high....probably due to the extra sound proofing materials etc..

    He did say that they might consider developing one of their series II induction kits for it...no word yet [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    I've an open element K&N on my 1967 SIIA 88" petrol Land-Rover. Seems to keep the stuff out ok, despite all the nastiness I've thrown at it.

    But those Landie engines, you could shovel dirt right down the carburettor and they'd still work ;-)


    So if you're not going with K&N, what would be your choice?
