    Hi,

    Just looking at doing the basics to my a3 and looking for a green cotton air filter.

    They have one listed on the website although thats for the 140bhp tdi engine. Should this fit and work in my 170bhp version?

    Thanks
    Mark

    I thought the green cottons were ok mainly the k&n and piper cross which are a little more greasy.

    A panel filter isn't going to give any noticeable improvements by itself.

    Coupled with a milltek exhaust, dpf delete and re-map it should all tie in nicely and give you a nice increase in performance.

    I thought that but to get a dpf delete, miltek exhaust and re-map it was going to cost me £1200 from JBS. Its mostly because of quattro that its that expensive. I have just remapped it for now, which made a nice difference. I really didnt think the panel filter was worth the money though.
