    K&N website says E-0646 for the S5. Same thing on an S4?

    Can't quite bring myself to pull the trigger until the weather gets warmer.

    Having opened the airbox, and knocked the **** off the paper one, E-0646 is the one for a B9, as per the website.

    This just arrived, does make a decent sound difference, and a few more pops for good measure! Will give it a proper shakedown tomorrow!

    Just got the bmc air filter and it does have a little deeper note to the noise and is more responsive.

    Other than hearing more turbo spool and more noise when I lift off, not any other noticeable difference

    RamAir CC-501-90... could have been done with one slightly shorter in length. This fitted, but only just!

    I have finally got hold of a k&n air filter for the s4 and what a difference...much more smoother through the gears ,more responsive and more whistle from the turbo..
    It is a better air filter than the BMC ..
    I have had the BMC Filter in for about 4 weeks which was a good filter but is not the best when setting off always seemed very jerky ,on a good note it made the car a lot more noisy though
    The K&N is just a better all rounder in my opinion

    Can you let me know where you bought this from?

    I used to have a K&N air filter on my Honda S2000 , and thought it was great
    Cheers D

    it fitted straight it ..cost around £80.00 to £90.00 but worth the money if you want to upgrade

    K&N E-0646 should fit according to one of the Audi engineers at my local dealership as he's got it in his. Getting hold of one isn't too easy though - he's recommended importing from Germany apparently.

    Found one here: https://www.euspares.co.uk/parts/kn-filters/13484470

    Don't blame me if for whatever reason it doesn't fit - just passing on for info :) - haven't tried it myself.

    Unbelievable how K&N UK accepts your PayPal payment for an air filter they do NOT stock.

    Warned by your above discussion I posed the question before ordering.

    This was their reply:

    What benefit does the ECS inlet pipe give?

    Other brands can give up to 19bhp. Armed with this + DTUK tunes gives the B9 S4 RS4 territory power with more torque.

    Just installed a BMC FB960/04 replacement filter. The bum dyno meter did not move, but a little smoother and perhaps a tad quieter. Did not want the K & N which apparently is not only noisier but 66% dearer.
    The instal did include vacuuming an absurd amount of munched leaves out of the OEM air filter box. Can't believe that is just since the last stealer service.

    Remind me to check for munched leaves in my filter box before the trip we are making over Easter. Also make sure there isn't something actually munching them ;-)

    I'm a huge sceptic on any aftermarket intake that claims more air in, without needing to re-calibrate the air flow sensor.

    This is a perfect example. The OEM S4 intake is already a short intake run with a large surface area cone filter and external air snorkel via the grille. If the MAF is still in range on the grammes per second of air its expecting to see, guess what, you ain't getting more air or more power (beyond un-noticeable single digit BHP at best).

    To be honest I don’t think it makes any difference but looks a lot nicer that the Henry the hoover looking one.

    Apologies for being a tad off topic but no sign of any critters having munched these leaves:
