    They are mad to think that people will buy this at that cost. Wonder if any market research was done before producing these.

    Are there any race series that may use this as standard issue kit, I like the idea of it, but not the price. Given me a thought as to how I might try a hybrid ITG unit....

    It's not unheard of for inductions to be this costly. The GruppeM one for M3's is around 3k if I'm not mistaken. It's ridiculous though. Not enough people who own S3's are willing to spend nearly 2k on an intake. I'd rather buy a Garrett :)

    Point is,if you want,you can spend as much as you want on any part.

    But.....does it perform better than the reference which currently is the ITG,and if that or the Twintake are good for 500bhp or more,which they are,then spend the money elsewhere.

    I certainly wouldn't bother with this.

    expensive bling, does it make any difference to performance? Not 2k's worth for sure!

    £2k spent elsewhere would make a lot more difference.

    For less than that thing costs you could have a Sorenson inlet manifold.....that puts the price into perspective.
