    Hi Guys,
    sorry for the really nooby question but I couldn't find the answer anywhere and figured you guys might know.

    I've uploaded a couple of pictures of my air filter from my 2000 A3 1.6.
    Is this air filter ok or do I need to replace it? I drive mainly around country roads.

    Thanks.

    May as well for what a one costs. It won't make anything any worse anyway!

    Darn it. Just missed your auction Terrier QTS. Funny enough I was getting stuff ready to sell on eBay.

    I'll go with the consensus and buy a new air filter.

    Cheers.

    Yeah, someone's got a bargain!! I'm not at all bothered though, I got an even better bargain when I won the BMC filter I'm currently running...99p!!!

    A nice shiny new one is on order...aswell as spark plugs, oi, oil filter and a new clutch. Just bought the car but it hasn't had a proper service for a while.
