    I'd say it's certainly worth it.. from my old TT and MK4 BAM it used to catch a LOT of rubbish, used to drain it every month just to keep it sorted and some of the stuff was ridiculous, the first drain is the worst... (not my image below, but looks the same!)


    Here's my one, mounted in the MK4 against the bulk head (did the same location in the TT, just drilled a 6mm hole and bolted it up and then you can see the 19mm black hoses from the breathers to the can. (it's the balck and red can on the right, below air-con pipes)

    hope that helps a bit... certainly a worth while mod
