Default What Air Intake Options are there for Your A5?

I am considering upgrading the air intake system on my vehicle. What options are out there, and is it pretty basic to do yourself, or require specialized tools at all?

Keeping things fairly stock I ordered a K&N Filter from VAP.
I have had these in ALL my vehicles since early 90's and love the benefit they give over standard air intakes.

I ended up ordering the APR Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake System (http://www.goapr.com/products/intake..._20tfsivl.html)

I should receive it early next week and will be try and find some time to install it hopefully next week as well.

How did you find the APR intake? I have the 2012 A5 sline and am thinking about doing the same. Any noticeable differences? L/100km, performance, etc.

I'm interested in upgrading the Air intake as well. I have a 2011 A5 (S-line) and I'd really be interested to know what benefits you notice.

I had the APR carbon intake in my previous 06 S4, it's great. Go for it!
