    Cone filter? Think messing with exhaust will make it sound like a tractor!

    Dont waste your money fella, it wont make a blind bit of difference, spend it on other mods or interior bits.

    It might sound better with a remap and backbox delete, but some of us and especially me can't afford an S3, TFSI, 3.2 etc let alone able to run one, tax one and insure one.

    I'm also wondering the same thing. Tempted to try a Pipercross panel filter to see if i hear the turbo anymore as said above, or back box delete but I'm unsure - don't want it sounding anymore like a tractor than it already does!

    The standard air filter is the best thing you can have in your TDI unless you're pushing over 230bhp, if you want a better exhaust noise run a Miltek non-res system (which can be a bit drony at some rpm). The main issue is that the turbo acts as a very effective silencer for any exhaust noise on a TDI.
