    I've had a look at the Carbonio Induction Kit for my 2.0 tdi, but it's over £400! Alot of the members on American Forum's seem to have them and say they notice a difference in the cars power, is there any power increase in your's? £400+ is a bit steep, although it does look good, maybe "Santa" will drop me one in, lol.

    U can buy it as a Stage 1 (£400) or Stage 2 (£200), What I have is stage Two as its only the Pipe, The car was already Quick, but u can feel a real difference with these Mods on Petrol Would say there's a Power increase but without it getting it on a rolling Road id not like to guess at how much, U would be best changing the Filter first, Cheap and u will notice a Difference when u pull away, A lot Smoother and the Revs build a lot Quicker, Ave a Long Run on Sunday so at the Moment am not sure if there's a Better MPG...

    Cheers Rabie, I'll have a better look at my options, already got a pipercross panel filter fitted & Superchips Bluefin remap, theses do make a difference to my diesel. Did you get a discount from APR being an ASN member?
    Hope your latest mod gives you more MPG, that would be the icing on the cake mate.

    Not sure about the Fuel, Best ave had was 29Mpg so far, Not really that bothered about it to be Honest, Around town its about 11mpg lol, I had a 2013 facelift A4 Black Edition 177 Quattro Before and got bored......The Supercharged 3ltr is some engine .........There's not much u can do with ur Motor if uve done the Filter and got a Map, And I wouldn't think an Induction Pipe would make that much a Difference on a Diesel. No Discount, Never thought in Asking, I'll keep it in mind for the Milteck and Map from Revo.

    Your probably right re the Induction pipe, it does look good though, I'll just spend the money on something boring, lol! The S4 should be like a rocket by the time you,ve finished your planned mods, keep me updated mate.

    Rabbie,
    I've been thinking bout this mod since I heard my intake pipe removed for a thrill.
    I'd really like to know what you think it is like living with it? Also, i think we may be within 50miles of each other so I might be able to hear you thrashing it underneath union street at some point?
    I've had 32mpg out of mine coming up from Stirling but A96 in to town or A947 it's rarely above 26.

    I've always been jealous of people outside the car getting the benefit of the exhaust and charger. Followed my dad driving mine and he was too tame to get an idea.
    Best I've heard it was in Cambusbarron nr Stirling (very narrow streets 4 storey buildings) all under 20mph!

    Might PM you for a comparison.

    I was going to get the carbonio induction kit as it's only $400 in the US. However they won't ship to the UK and direct you to their UK distributor and has simply swapped the $ for a £ and charges a rip off £400! Robbing Tw*ts!!!!

    Anyway, interesting what you say Rabie, that the carbonio doesn't produce that much more noise. I replaced my standard Audi air panel filter with a K&N panel filter and it produces abit more noise and you can certainly hear the whoosh of the turbo alot more now! I wonder if the carbonio would be alot louder on the Turbo engined A4's like the 2.0TFSI!

    Think if u change the Pipe on a Turbo ud get a lot more Induction Noise than what u would with the Super Charger....WIthout some actually driving my car and giving it a blast ave no idea how mine sounds from outside .....maybe makes a lot more noise than than I can hear from inside......U do notice a Decent change in how easy it revs with the K&N Cone filter and good chance it would be louder if I did away with the Standard Air box but I want it to look standard when u pop the Bonnet....
