      This is on the bottom of the Air Filter part. How would this even happen?

      Any idea cost of much is this to replace OEM? Or is it cheaper to just go aftermarket intake at this point?

      Factory style is about $210. The oem one is another $100.

      It could be cheaper to get a performance one depending on which one you go with.

      This probably happened when they (dealer perhaps) tried to remove the cover/filter box and
      in the procedure it broke...

      They then simply "forgot" to mention it cause they'd have to pay for it....

      VW's idea of incorporating the air filter in the engine cover has to be one of the
      DUMBEST IDEAS they had....ever...

      P.S. No i'm sorry i take that back...Their dumbest idea was the cam follower....Yeah...

      Wow. That is more than I feared. Time to start looking for aftermarket ones.

      I found the Intake thread, with a bunch of people showing their off. But no one really saying which is the best, or at least better.


      I called VW, the replacement part is 311$. So, what is the best aftermarket intake for a stock, 2.0t FSI? The only real upgrades I might do is an exhaust and a ECU flash. But not now.

      They are all the same in my opinion (performance wise) unless you are looking to squeeze every tiny bit of power out. You won't feel a difference in power, just in sound and look.

      I bought the neuspeed one because it was the cheapest for my car.

      Good luck!

      I have an OEM one sitting in my shed I'd be willing to part with.

      Cold Air Intake for M/T, P-Flo (65.10.97) $189 to your door.

      Love the sound. My car had the Evom intake when I bought it, changed it to the neuspeed = starts and runs better.

      hey just thought id weigh in.... i got the k&n intake and could not be happier, not a ton of ppl go with it but they come with the best filters are generally cheaper and sound deep never high pitched. take a look on youtube for different sounds, but at the end of the day they are all a filter on a stick, so the pipe with the least amount of couplings will provide better air flow. the k&n is one solid pipe with no breaks imo best deal, sound, filter, and a slight throttle response improvement....

      i also have a stock fsi airbox at the house with a middle of its life filter in it id be happy to let that go for 80 plus shipping

      hope this helps!!!
      btw ive had nuespeed, k&n, evoms, and that carbon one on a couple of different vdubs, best sound is between evoms and k&n, power difference between the 2 is negligible, price plays the biggest role and k&n is way better for the money
