    Hey guys, I've fallen in love with this air filter, it's perfect for what I need and probably some of you have seen it around the forum somewhere. I've just got one question, how can I get one? Or was that a DIY job that someone decided to do???

    RichA3Turbo has one fitted on his car!/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/yes.gif Does a cracking job too. Its the first filter i've fitted which did actually make a difference. The turbo spools up about 200rpm sooner than it used to! its a great filter and although 'homemade' is the BEST filter i have ever seen/had. Its bloody excellent quality and looks real nice too. Speak to Steve Schwing (seschwing@earthlink.net)...Hes a nice chap.

    I got mine when i went to San Francisco a few weeks back....had it delivered to my hotel for $10 and bought it back in my suitcase evading duty and VAT /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Its $50 for UK shipping and you run the risk of paying duty and vat on it. I paid $200 for the filter and then $25 (i think) for 7ft of neoprene ducting. Definately worth it i'd say.

    Yeah I agree Rich, the quality looks great on the pages, and the fitments are just perfect, and the great thing is that it has two cold air feeds which is just perfect. Thanks a lot Rich, I've been lookin around for a while, and would be up for paying duty and VAT if it means I'll get it, hehe. Cheers again guys /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    lol, yeah man you know where I'm talkin about lol. Hey Rich, I don't suppose you have any Vag readings with the new air filter? like how much more air is being sucked in with the TTDA over the standard.

    Like everything else, something is only worth what you are willing to pay!

    $200 ain't that much with todays exchange rate... once you buy the K&N cone filter, flanges and other material - the guy want be making that much from the item.

    Well...No. Its MGD based yes, with insulation inside, actual carbon fibre on the outside (carbion fibre mat resined and gel coated on with a K&N cone filter. Works very well indeed and loooks great too. It really is the best filter kit ive got my hands on so far.
