    Dont think I want to go down the CAI route (at the minute) so I am very keen in getting panel filter

    Cant remember the members name who is using an ITG filter and recommends it

    I had a Green in my TDI and liked it so what else is out there?

    I've a Pipercross one that'll be looking for a new home soon, in fact it's been out of the car since the last service. It's all cleaned up and you're more than welcome to it if your after one.

    Did you notice anything or reason why you did not put it back in?

    Reason for not putting it back in was that I'm getting a carbon evoms CAI sometime in the next couple of weeks. It did seem to free it up a little when it was on, obviously not in the same league as a full CAI but noticeable.

    I'd go with Pipercross as they are dry on this car, so no risk of MAF damage. Pipercross are now used by VW Racing too.
