Interesting.  My gut feeling is that non-urq turbo Audis are more common in the 
USA than they are here.  I wonder if there's a difference between standard OEM 
parts in the USA and the UK - perhaps with the USA going for the "highest 
common denominator?
What is the significance of the "turbo" marking on a filter cartridge, seeing 
as the physical dimensions are the same?

Time for a chat with Tim at The Parts Department.
