Ok. I didn’t know that. The cold air feed would be an improvement, yes.  :happy2:

Also, the intake on the VWR is huge compared to the little letterbox, which definitely helps achieve it's almost 10% hp gain!

Hi Pudding

Just got one these vwr kits of a mate, not fitted it yet, I wanted have read up on them before fitting and I come across your review a couple of days ago which is very good and has highlighted some bad design flaws.

The one that I'm struggling to solve is where to purchase a flex joint like or similar to the one you have, been trawling the net for last 2 days with no joy, can you point me in the right direction to where I can purchase one, it would be much appreciated. 

It is definitely a must have on a fixed intake like the vwr, just like the oem air box has one.

@Roskotek Hello, I'm glad you found the info useful!

I also struggled to find a suitable flex in the UK so in the end I bought one of these from VW and modified it  :happy2:  Basically just cut the rectangle bit off and with a heat gun you can make a lip for the hose clamp to fit.  1K0 129 618 AH
