You could try Pudding - I think he was trying to sell one quite a while ago but not sure if he ever did...

I sold it ages ago.  Although why anyone would want one after my scathing review is beyond me  :grin:  To be fair, it's not a bad intake so long as you accept it's shortcomings.  Just keep a spare radiator top hose on standby  :wink:

@Pudding i had one before on my mk5 and yes apart from that issue with the hose i found it to be a very good intake. i had a revo before this one and i found it too loud and i found the VWR to be perfect (not very loud whooshing noises). unfortunately i sold my mk5 (regret it to this day!) and now im looking for another intake for a friend (he owns a garage so has been informed of the shortcomings of the hose!)

Yeah the noise levels were pretty good. Agreed on the Revo, it’s way too noisy!

To be fair it’s not really ITG’s fault that VWR chose a generic canister that doesn’t fit in the engine bay properly. And that was my whole beef with the company. Their ‘that’ll do’ approach to fitment but charging premium prices for it. Their marketing far exceeds their ability, but hey ho, not gonna wind myself up about it anymore  :grin:
