    I had a Green panel filter in my A3 TDI - can't say I noticed much difference with it in but for he sake of £30 or there abouts you may as well.

    Don't bother with an induction kit, just stick with the stock intake and fit a performance panel filter

    I was recommended the green filter by members of seatcupra.net and never had any MAF issues or problems

    Had a Green Panel on my LCR many moons ago, not sure why that brand doesn't seem to have much traction for the 2.0 TFSI engines?
