I don't believe that Audi O.E. filters (VW p/n ending with 561) are Bosch.
I'm almost certain they are either Mahle or Mann. All so called "O.E."
filters you get from the likes of The Parts Connection et all are Mahle or
Mann. I have purchased one aftermarket Bosch and it looked nothing like an
O.E. one from an Audi dealer, the Mann does. Not to say Bosch filters are
bad, nor are Frams et all any good... Simply that your advice is misleading
and incorrect. Just a clarification for the archives...
