    Yeah that looks to have some pipe work to make it fit though.

    That kit looks cool [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ... all the bits you need are there anyway.

    The BMC CDA's that are listed for the A4 don't fit out of the box because there is no lip on one end (the end that's supposed to attach to the MAF housing) to actually attach it to... and the housing fouls on the surface of the box hence the need for a raised lip or flange, which that one has... it actually has a flange at either end and pipes provided to clamp onto them so it will be a good fit by the looks of it.

    Let us know how it goes in if you get one... shame they don't offer them in 3 or 3.5" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Yeah they need to be kept cold i was told, if they burn out you can knacker a coil pack. Plus if it burns out its supposedly a couple o hundred quid for a new one.

    Yes those ignition modules are not cheap at all... and without them the car simply will not start, forget burning out coilpacks! I better move mine somewhere colder now the hot weather is (sort of) upon us! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    just pull the wiring and ign. module back towards the strut and zip tie it to the pipes there, keeps it in airflow and plenty of cooling

    Just kidding jcb... it's sort of there at the moment... I have a poxy cone filter fitted for now and the ignition module is zip-tied in place just under the upper half of the intake pipe (which I left in place to feed the cone... works fine but I always become very aware of exactly how hot it gets under the hood every time I lift it!
