hello, I have a 2013 1.8 Audi A3 tfsi s tronic. What air filters are best for these cars? Or what would someone recommend. Cheers

Nothing wrong with OE style paper - Ferrari use paper ones. If ones made from sponge/cotton, smothered in grease/oil and go faster names were any good, I'm sure Ferrari would use them :highly amused::highly amused:

Oiled air filter are generally fine and I’ve had them in many cars with no issues. The problem is when people clean and regrease them most are too liberal with the oil and this create problems as the oil gets in the MAF sensor and the car generally doesn’t like it and causes all sorts of problems.

Lamborghini - note with OE high quality paper filters the folds are numerous and tightly packed to give maximum surface area
