    Buy the cheapest, none of them will make any difference.

    They'll probably make the car slower in fact.

    I would set Jetex and make sure it gets as much cold air as possible or stick with a standard airbox filter.

    I have a BMC CDA kit that I bought for a laugh for my old XJR but realised as soon as I fit it (did less than 5 miles on it) that I wouldn't be able to feed in as much cold air as I wanted to it due to the engine bay being full of engine.... It should have 90% or so of the parts that you will need and I don't want much for it, was going to sell it for £100 + delivery.

    Make sure it gets cold air and then you should get the noise your after and still avoid to much heat soak.

    You can route a cold air feed between the battery box and the wing, personally I would try to buy one of the CAI's for a 1.8t and try and butcher it to fit.

    The MAF is in the same place so it should be easy to modify.

    Popping out a fog light for a cold air feed is the most disgusting thing imaginable. Please don't do it.

    The filter goes on the end of the pipe, down in the front bumper.

    Correct, it would get dirty.

    And yes, they are all one piece that I have seen. That is the first one I have seen with a split in it.

    Not a clue. That engine bay looks pants to me, it's just a standard car with a £30 CAI.

    I can tell you exactly where the filter goes, down behind the front bumper between the wheel arch trim and the bumper. It sits behind the horns. I should know I ran one for years.

    It will be exactly the same behind your bumper as any other A3.

    The pipe for the kit looks like this -

    [​IMG]

    And the tabs mount on the original airbox mounts, the tabs are the same between a 1.6 and an A3 so I'm sure all you will need to do it make correct adapters for the MAF sensor.

    A normal filter with no cold air feed is the setup I have, and it is much better than one of these CAI kits in terms of longevity and filtration purposes.

    [​IMG]

    No need for a cold air intake on my car, it's a 240bhp 1.8t and the IAT's are 24* peak and 9* minimum due to the intercooler.

    It is an app called Torque, only available for Android.

    It allows you to take readings from all of the vehicles sensors in the same way VAGCOM does, you can display them in a dashboard like this and it will do logs, clear fault codes, record videos with the information overlayed and all sorts of things.

    The boost seems innacurate but that is due to my own setup, however the other values are pulled straight from the ECU.

    Thanks Jardo- I presume it'll need a cable or a wireless obd2 widget?
    Like a liquid gauge?
