The Audi A6 has been around for a number of years and always seemed to play second fiddle to the BMW 5-series and Mercedes E-class. By no means is it an inferior vehicle- it comes with powerful and fuel-efficient engine options, cabins full of technology and luxurious styling, and Audi's famous Quattro all-wheel-drive system on select trim levels. For whatever reason, it just wasn't the go-to option for buyers seeking a sporty luxury midsized sedan.

That has changed though. The 2012, 2013 and 2014 Audi A6, and the 4G2 and 4G5 body styles of the 2011 year, received some welcomed upgrades that put it at the head of the pack. A more fuel-efficient 4-cylinder motor was introduced, the interior was refined with styling cues from the A8, and the exterior received a facelift that brings even sharper, sporty styling. Some might wonder then, is it possible to improve on the class-leading Audi A6? Yes - installing K&N E-2987 lifetime performance air filter.

The E-2987 is designed to increase horsepower and acceleration and is an easy to install performance upgrade for your Audi A6. It's a direct replacement for the factory air box. The filter is round in shape and utilizes a durable urethane seal to ensure a tight, positive seal. E-2987 uses K&N's oiled cotton gauze air filter media to help minimize restriction, improve airflow, and provide excellent filtration efficiency.
