VWR High-Flow Panel Air Filter


Looking for a simple, warranty-friendly upgrade for your car? The VWR High-Flow Panel Air Filters, available for most Volkswagen Group TSI and TDI cars replace the restrictive factory paper filters with an improved, high flow and reusable lifetime triple-layer Trifoam® filter. Put simply, it’s the best Panel Air Filter you can buy.

The filter is one of the most cost-effective enhancements you can make to set your engine free by allowing it to breathe better and operate more efficiently – improve the engine’s airflow, and power and fuel economy gains will follow. By removing the inevitable restrictions that the standard paper panel filter gives, the VWR Panel Filter allows a small but worthwhile increase in airflow through to the turbo.  A great match for a Stage 1 OEM+ remap or a standard car.

The result?  More mid-range power and improved economy, without wrecking your warranty.




Trifoam® filter construction, triple-layer laminate of open-cell polyurethane foam, which gives an exceptionally high level of filtration – the very same technology as Formula One engines use.


Fitting couldn’t be more simple: remove the standard paper filter, and drop in the VWR High-Flow filter.  And easily returned to standard should you ever wish.


Hand-built in the UK, the triple foam layers are held in place by a stainless steel open mesh, surrounded by a poured polyurethane moulded seal to provide an airtight seal against the standard airbox.


Efficient filtration means mid-range torque gains. A small economy improvement is often reported back to us by customers.


This is a ‘lifetime’ filter, so never needs replacement in normal service. Cleaning is only required every 20,000 miles (30,000km) in normal usage.
