    I currently have a K&N panel filter, but I miss the turbo whistle I used to have in my other car so want to fit a pod filter.

    what are these like please?

    Over priced. Heat shield isn't needed, I run the S2000 filter, can't fault it.

    If it's going on to a S3 it will go straight on to the MAF, if it's on a A3 then you'll need a silicone reducer, something around the 70-80mm mark to go between the MAF and cone. don't need a heat shield, when the air goes through the turbo it will be up to super high temperatures anyways so a heat-shield will make no difference
