They’re overpriced for what they are. Plus covid made stock non existent, sadly. Though I bet any other options might be hard to source due to covid too

plus. Finding one that’s washable in water would be awesome
Have you measured it yet? AFe makes filters washable in water even though they recommend you spray their cleaner on and rinse with water. They probably have a size that would work.

Thanks for the info! Mine isn’t like a cone. It’s a cylinder. I’m gonna have to go and measure it

I now have another stupid question

is the alignment on the s and se the same as the autobahn?

I ask because the GLI s feels like it has a bit more negative camber on the front vs a GLI autobahn

Hey would you guys call an estimate of 3.5 hours each to swap out my motor and transmission a bit excessive?
U mean 3.5 to remove them and another 3.5 to put the motor and tranny back?

it’s a bit over but it’s also not bad. 2 hours each way would be ideal. But even then, some folks just can’t do it that fast due to lack of experience

Seven hours for motor mounts is way too much. Look elsewhere or install yourself.
The driver side is a little tricky with the wiring harness getting in the way, but I changed my mounts in well under three hours. In my driveway.
A professional with the shop, lift and all the tools should be able to do it in two.

Edit: not the mounts, but remove and replace the engine and trans? Seven hours is not too crazy.

Yeah that’s wayyyyyy too long for a Mount install. I paid $250 at a small family performance shop in Jersey called TCR Racing, they build RS3’s. He got it done in about 1 hour.
