Twintercooler is not any cheaper at around £700.

Are there any other options at all on the market besides forge?

Can we buy from Germany cheaper?
Neupseed doesn't seem to have a dealer in Europe

Dan, like salik mentioned unitronic $364 pounds (560 USD) you need to email and see if they will deliver to you but possibly might and be $450 delivered!

I saw that and it's a lovely bit of kit but importing and customs is a nightmare here... I know from doing many times before.
If I can find something in Germany or Europe for a similar price it would be better.

The 750eu one is tempting.

Wagner is quite popular in Europe n SA in mk7 Golf Gti but for A3/S3 we need to do some trimming before fitting also its 100euro more expensive than hg-motorsport intercooler

Hg looks like it's the biggest one, so leaning towards that.

Seriously mate: you buy cheap, you buy twice. You gotta pay to play in this game.

This.. /\

The reason I chose a Proalloy for the 8P was exactly for that reason.
It was the best and still is..... Always get the best or as near as but never cheap copies.

Not a bad price that.
Hg-Motorsport one is looking like a winner for me despite not being black.

I'm currently in the process of seeking out a new Intercooler. Read a fair few threads and narrowed my search down to the Wagner and the Proalloy IC.

For the Wagner I've found the following info:

Competition intercooler has the following core size (610mm x 440mm x 65mm), providing a 10% larger frontalarea and 50% more volume compared to the original Audi S3 intercooler.
Wagner-Tuning "Competition" Core with high cooling performance and light weight (9,3KG).

And the Proalloy:

* Free flowing core 25% thicker and 16.5% larger frontal area over the oem unit.

* Extensive testing showed that the PRO cooler reduced the air intake temps to just 4 degrees above ambient. (The standard cooler only managed 16 degrees above ambient.

Im struggling to pick between the two, I'm no expert haha! I just want the best for my car, looking to map to stage 2+ or stage 3 by Christmas.

I spoke to the main Revo dealer around my area a few months ago, he said they where in the process of releasing a new Intercooler for the 2.0 tfsi engines but nothing ever came up on their website. Where did you buy it from buddy?

REVO cooler fitted , just got to have my settings adjusted to get the most , nice big intercooler with decent core and much bigger end tanks, fitting was a absolute killer but keeping stock look is never going to be easy
