    Wouldnt buy that, filters too small.

    Only problem with fitting one of them mate is water getting sucked up.

    i have that pipe with a differnt filter on it, the filter was way to big in the pack i got ( wasnt the same one but similar), as dani said you have to be a bit careful when driving through puddles as it is so low to the ground, especially if your car is lowered. i have a coldside relocation kit blowing straight into the metal and it is alot louder than the standard box but its not a tshh noise.

    CIA's are fine, I had one on a mazda I once had, yes you do avoid puddles but it depends on how you mount it, mount it where water cant be sprayed or pushed to it. `if your really worried about dragging water in, you can by anti hydro-lock flap valves which fit along the down pipe and close up if the resistance (i.e. water being sucked up instead of air) increases but I wouldnt do it personally, I wouldnt risk strangling the engine. Its no worse than a 306 front splitter mounted stock air intake, which incidently I once owned and drove through a flood and yup, new engine.

    If you want noise you need a cone mate, mines loud now I have my cone back on...the TIP wont add much noise on its own.

    After all the slagging cones I've had no issues since mines been on. Although its not a 'flutter' noise, its a 'cough'.

    yer what tom said. its not a flutter but a loud noise and coughing sums it up quite well haha. i have experimented with 3 types of air filter. orignal box, heat gaurded air cone, pipe to font bumper ( like in your link) and at the mo i just have a big air filter in the engine bay. the pipe is very good if you know your not going to get puddles ( which in england happen alot !) the shielded air intake ( in my dp) was amazing and kept the air cold but the filter inside was very small so was restrcive. i have just a cone on at the mo which is the best of both world but will have to wait till the sumer to find out!

    I'm running a BMC with my Forge 007p and get a lovely 'whoosh' sound now. No decrease in performance and the way the car feels btw ever since i had my BMC. Some people said they're ***** and not to do it as the car runs like **** with a BMC....well mine isn't and i've had it a few weeks now :)

    I'm also waiting for the summer (if it arrives this year!), any issues will mean the stock airbox goes back on :)

    to be fair im looking at a similar set up for the A3...... the S3, you would struggle even with a front mount fitted allowing the extra space

    neighbour has the carbonio kit and it gives him the flutter your talking about - same as this but carbon

    the worries are as above though...especially with it being the misus car
