How long has it taken for your filters to be delivered? Does anyone know any stockists?
ebay is the way....
Pay the extra postage on it @ £6.99 for next day delivery....
Ah brilliant, so the fittment for the a3 and s3 are the same yes?
in stock with me 1-2 day delivery
I didn't know you kept them Bill, I'll bear that in mind in future... I'm considering going back to OEM airbox.
sorry to hijack your thread, what are the benefits of this green cotton / panel filters?
Well, the listing says for both so I assume so.
Ah ok, Badger5 how much posted from yourself? Want one asap really.
ok following my previous post, how long does a £45 filter last?
Green cotton claim 100,000 miles..... But I wouldn't use it that long.
Better flow rate.
Guys as we're on the subject of air filters etc (im running standard OEM box with green cotton and drilled, trumped removed and smoothed and I love it!)
I have a fully enclosed Forge carbon fibre induction kit I'm going to be Ebaying soon hopefully tonight. Basically I fitted it because the way it was mounted/angle it put strain on my TIP which caused my TIP to collapse under full throttle even with my silicone TIP. The TIP collapsed where it starts to angle down 90deg down to the bottom of the engine bay towards the turbo inlet right in the top corner of the bend.
Apparently you can get special mesh to stop tip collapse but I didn't know that and can't be bothered as I'm happy with OEM now. I also have the cold air feed pipe for it but it got pretty mashed as I managed to feed it through the wheel arch liner through the tiny hole where the original oem air intake is. BELIEVE ME IT'S TIGHT! Had to take the passenger side wheel arch/fender plastic off to feed it through and it needed some flexing to go back on! Anyway as a result the cold air feed pipe is pretty mashed after being removed as you can imagine, but if anyone fancies giving it a go you can bid for it - kits worth over £150 so it could end up being a bargain.
For the hassle I re-fitted my OEM box... Just thought I'd throw it out there in case anyones tempted can post auction no. later.
As for the subject of green panel filters isn't there's one in the classifieds brand new right here:
GO GET IT!
I tried to contact that seller about that filter a few weeks ago, but received no reply.

the benefit based upon past tests has been longevity, in that you wont have to change it every service
