Fits my Audi A4 2000 fine. I have used it before. It lasted recommended 32000miles. With 30℅ off coupon - good value.

Improper Fit Filter

This filter was supposed to be an EXACT fit for 2001 VW Passat 1.8 AWM. Gasket is too thick to fit properly. Filter should be removed as an exact fit for VW equipment.

    Comments about Purolator Classic Air Filter:

    This puralator air filter was of mush better quality than the air filter it was replacing. (I believe it was a Driveworks filter). This air filter is very rigid and fit perfectly in my 1997 BMW 740iL.

                This is sold as an exact replacement for the 2004 Passat. It does not fit. The problem is with the gasket. The gasket is too thick and does not have the square locking grooves all around the oem on top and bottom. Its to thick and you can't close the air box and fasten the clips. Not sure why I didn't read the reviews before buying it seems everyone has had the same problem.

                        I don't often take the time to post my disssatisfaction with a product but this one deserves it, #1 as mentioned in previous reviews there is maybe half as much fiter material as an OEM part, #2 is the lack of metal mesh on the top side to keep it in it's proper shape, #3 the gasket is different making it very hard to install, and #4 is the cost, at [$] it's a joke.

                        Purolator Classic Air Filter DOES NOT meets or exceeds OEM specifications and FIT for an Audi A4 1.8L Turbo Engine and its HORRIBLE.
