AVANTAGE VAG Air Intake Systems for Audi, BMW, Mercedes and Volkswagen are meticulously designed and manufactured to ensure your engine receives an unrestricted supply of cool, clean air.
Your stock filter is efficient and has been designed to maximize filtration in all possible conditions. With tuned cars, replacing the stock air intake system with a high flow intake that retains optimal filtration capability is a crucial step in freeing up horsepower and torque.

This page has information about complete replacements for your stock air intake system. For most cars an aftermarket performance filter is available if you would like to retain your factory airbox and only upgrade the air filter medium with a drop-in air filter.
Why An Intake System?
Your engine needs to breathe freely. Intake air should flow as fast as possible, as much as possible, and as cold as possible. Cold air is important, as it improves combustion and enables your engine to produce maximum power. Some key benefits are:
- Better throttle response
- Improved torque
- Improved fuel consumption
- Great improvement in engine bay aesthetics
Watch out for open pod filters in our tropical environment. These filters work great in cooler climates but will also draw in hot air from inside the engine compartment. Heat is a problem especially with turbocharged engines. Coupled with hot outside temperatures and city traffic, the net effect of open pod filters is negative in our climate.
Suitable air intake systems avoid this problem by enclosing the air filter in aerodynamically designed, lightweight housings, keeping the hot engine air out and providing the coolest air possible for your engine. Hot air will eliminate much of the performance gains provided by an aftermarket parts, but the specialized air intake system improves performance by feeding the engine with cold air from outside of the car for better combustion.
Eventuri Air Intake System
Eventuri manufactures high-end filtration systems and with patent-pending technology. Highly recommended when available for your Audi, BMW, Mercedes or Volkswagen.
AWE Tuning Air Intake System
The AWE Tuning intake system consists of a high-tech, lightweight carbon fiber enclosing a washable cone filter. Designers have put in a lot of man-hours to engineer this specialized air intake system, and you will feel the effect in improved throttle response and power.
Research also shows that an air intake system needs to replace the restrictive pipes located after the mass air sensor, and this is completed in stylish stainless steel piping.
Applications are available for turbocharged and supercharged engines, and airflow has been measured by an independent lab at being up to 34% higher than stock.
VAG Air Intake by Dbilas Dynamic
The Dbilas Dynamic air intake system from AVANTAGE VAG ensures you get a boost in performance without compromising your engine's durability.
With a Dbilas Dynamic FlowMaster air filter system, the air that the engine receives is not only dirt free but the high flow air filter element reduces restriction, meaning that more air reaches the engine. A higher flow of cooler, denser air results in better performance, and the location of the air filter in your car also makes it easy to service.
You will love the subtle induction roar that the system produces under wide open throttle. Not too loud for an Audi, but definitely a statement that there's something different under the hood of your pride and joy. Irrespective of whether you drive an Audi, BMW, Mercedes or Volkswagen, the understated "go and show" of the VAG Dbilas Dynamic air intake sets you apart from the crowd.
The Dbilas Dynamic Air Intake System is manufactured in Germany and TÜV approved, and is made from the highest quality materials. The thoughtful design and construction also ensure quick and easy servicing of the air filter element.
