Don't know what the diff is between the 10v and 20v turbos...
The Mahle filters I was given at the local parts shop are different yet!
For the '91 200q 20v, they gave me Mahle OC49.  This is equated to a Mann W
719/15, and is dimensionally the same as the dealer supplied filter,

just to add a bit more confusion!
