    Right PITA! Took about 10 mins to get everything off and I only noticed after installing everything else that it wouldn't fit begind the light!

    should do mate, once you remove the old washer bottle, you will get a bit more room

    Still waiting for mine... ordered chrome finish...looks much better in my opinion... :) Can anyone feel anything different in engine performance even just very very little improvment, such as smooth accelerating or something..??

    You won't notice any difference in the way the car runs.

    Wht it will do is to separate out all of the oil/air/water rubbish that can accumulate and be reingested by the engine....I've run two cars with oil separator systems like this before,,and you really won't notice that it's there.......you will however notice if it isn't connected properly!

    BTW...many thanks to all for the fitting instructions.

    Defiantly doesn't fit.... Took the washer bottle piping out, even took the charcoal canister out. The problem was with the Xenon, I have the LED DS3's in there on the facelift, totally different.

    Think you should phone Forge and ask them. I have not tried to fit mine as the Forge imprint on the can is not right , disappointed really for the cost of it, still waiting a reply from FR&R.

    Let us know what they say.

    When I had my fitted, it was a comleate misfit, had to do all kinds of small modifications for it to fit, and than finally when it was finishid I doscoverd that the catch tank was leaking fumes and oil,, disaster!!! All in all very bad regarding the cost of it...

    We recently discovered some of the VAG vehicles have different headlights ( xenons) this was not apparent on the first 50 we sold.... or on the test cars we had in , we are aware now of the problems and we have modified the reservoir that allows the washer bottle to be filled up ...... , the issue with the leak is also being sorted with the company that is fitting the catch can .....I would like to apologise for any issues caused , we do our best , sometimes things go wrong , what I can guarantee is that it will be fixed or you can have a full refund if you are not happy

    A big thanks to Forge today,for agreeing without any questions(other than name and address!)to replace mine by tomorrow.
    Mine was leaking but thankfully I had leak tested it before having it fitted,and I think someone in QC there will be having a bit of a conversation today sometime!

    I'm not annoyed particularly,other than it put the mockers on getting the thing fitted tomorrow,but the service and backup was excellent,and I do think that should be mentioned.

    Tried to fit mine yesterday , and it does not fit, like S3 Decked, but mine is a pre face lift car but has adaptive zenon headlights. The problem is the same ie not enough space as the headlight goes into the engine bay further.

    I have posted a picture furter up of mine fitted to my pre facelift, you could try adjusting the black bracket that the catch can and water bottle bolts onto.

    There was a delay in the production as we had to manufacture new alloy spinnings , these have been done and the order was sent to Gabrek tuning yesterday , I can confirm we have now made the change to the catch can water topper on ALL models so this problem should now be sorted , I would like to apologise again for any issues and remind the members if they are not happy with tihs products we will refund all their money
