    the original filter was only about 6 weeks old so it wasnt dirty so it wasnt a case of noticing the difference because the old one was clogged... hope you get the same results

    i just fitted one on my 3.2 gsi also

    air filter was brand new, was only in 4 days. I noticed the difference too but to be honest, not a huge difference, ran well and was very quick to begin with so hard to judge
