Will this aFe Pro 5R filter fit our stock air box ('17 Q5 3.0 TFSI engine)?


There seems to be some confusion about whether our stock air box is the same as on the S4 and S5. My K&N 1987 fits perfectly, so I think the aFe version should fit. Anyone here running it?

I'm considering changing to the aFe version because it has the inverted cone design with open end which should provide more surface area than the K&N with the closed end.

And, yes, I want to oiled cotton and not the dry flow. No need to go there. We do not have a MAF sensor to oil foul. Just want to know if it will fit.
