    Hi, which panel air filter would be best for my Audi A3 3.2 V6? Im stuck between Pipercross PP1683 or ITG WB-665. What do you guys recommend? I know these wont do a great deal but im after something a little bit better than OE.Thanks.

    thanks for the reply, The OE one fitted is a Mann and it looks very recent. I did some research last night but found more info on the MK5 R32 going for the Pipercross mainly due to the price difference (pipercross approx £34/ITG approx £50). If the ITG panel is better I would go for that. I owned a ZR 160 vvc for 3 with an ITG and was happy with it.

    TBH some real world tests of filters would be good, I know they did some over on tdiclub of stock & aftermarket, they found stock was as good if not better than aftermarkets.

    I've got the pipercross on mine and fitted a 3" feed from one of the fog light grills at the same time. Probably a bit of a placebo, but it does feel a little more responsive.

    OEM filter is recommended over and over again to be the best filter there is. This has come up so many times now I can't believe these AM companies still make money from their panel filters!
