Asked by Feb 11, 2017 at 11:03 AM about the 2012 Audi A6 3.0T quattro Prestige Sedan AWD

Question type: Car Customization

Hi, I have a 2012 Audi A6 supercharged Quattro
and looking to make some minimal upgrades to
increase HP, torque and sound.  My first project is
to add a cold air intake, as this seems to be the
easiest yet beneficial upgrades.  What cold air
intakes for my vehicle are considered the best on
the market for their quality and performance?

K&N would be one of quality construction. Uncertain if they make one that fits your car. Oiled filters like the K&N can cause issues if over-oiled and they are very easy to over-oil. I would not modify it as you will have enough problems with it being unmodified. Audi has more than their fair share of issues and are somewhat lacking in the reliability department. Why ask for problems?
