Sorry but that harks back to the days when using a special circular spark plug would give you more power and save gas and many more different things to save you gas.

Back then I used to buy all these things and I saved so much gas my tank kept overflowing.

But seriously I just want a filter I can clean and replace at will especially since for almost 6 months I'm in Mexico.

Well,
I don't know but my owners manual sez to change the paper air filter every 60k. Do you put on 10k per month while you are in Mexico?

You certainly didn't read those good reports here. The consensus on TDIClub is - and has been for over a decade - to avoid K&N products.

Stick with the OE paper filters. They're far superior to K&N in terms of filtration performance.

What's wrong with paper?

The paper filters may be far superior functionally, but they don't have flashy advertising and gimmickry. Look at how many poorly informed consumers are duped into buying unneeded and often harmful products like Slick50, fuel line magnets, etc. A sucker is born every minute.

I prefer these to a cotton washable, the charcoal does more than just removing dust.

The alternative is to run them like my truck, no filter. Close your lungs or filter them with a cigarette, we're going in!

Well it looks like you sucked for it one more time and bought an inferior product from a manufacturer (for more money) that is all about their hype as being as good as or better than the OE product and will save you money.

Here we go agian..........how childish could you possibly be. Your truck gets 20 more HP with a K&N air filter because the guy that sold it to you said so. Man O Man this forum gets some real doozies. You just gotta say something eh?

Pretty sure he was being sarcastic. That piston looked mighty chewed up.

Agree with you on the mann charcoal cabin filters.

Alright, that sarcasm went right over my head and I'll bet many others. This thread is becoming useless from the informational standard we are so proud of here. I suggest the mods close and lock it
