Default whats a good cold air intake?

Hey guys I am wondering what you think the best cold air intake is for a 07 b7 audi a4 2.0 quattro is. I have seen a ton of the AEM one does anyone know if thats worth it?

alot of people say that they really dont notice a differance from the carbino and stock. and to tell you the truth alot of people will tell you that just a drop in K&N will do the trick. people with BT upgrades are still usen the stock air box because its efficient.

my opinion, save your money and use it towards something else.

If you are really into it. the AEM you are telling is one of the best. Also this stuff is not that expensive. Worth every penny.

I put a carbonio on my b6 1.8t and immediately felt/heard a difference. Took about 45 minutes to install. Very easy, great detailed instructions. Worth every dime imo.

Carbonia is really a nice option. I am also using the same one from last 2 years and it is working fine.

According to this post cold air kits are a waste of money. Read and take what you want from it. Go here:

As to K&N air filters, I have one in my motorcycle, but I recently read a thread on one of the Audi forums (may have been Audizine again) that, at least when compared to the regular Audi air filter, it offers no better performance and less protection. Darn!
