    Just changes mine on my 2.8 too. Its a quattro. Bit of an awkward bastard job, but if you have access to car ramps to get it in the air I would inagine it would be much easier! I'm sure yours is a quattro, as I'm certain Isaw it advertised/up for sale not so long ago! When I got my old filter off I had a blow through it and compared to the new one it was quite restricted!!! Make sure you replace the metal washers too!!!! And ref air filters, Byzan is absolutely right. I have a K&N in mine but there is bugger all difference from when the OE paper one was in!
    Have fun!

    Jeez! Thats funny, thats the exact guide I used! Fair play!
    Yeah mine is a quattro. Santorin Blue. Wasn't planning to keep her for that long, or actually do anything to her. HOWEVER, she has really grown on me. Never owned an Audi before (I always went JAP) and I am really really impressed......Apart from yours, the only time I have ever seen a white Avant is when I was in Canada in 2004. And that was an RS4 with white wheels too.
