    FYI you are paying for something that can easily be purchased within Australia. See AutoInstruct or VWCentral for local companies.

    In my previous S3 (manual), the intake mod was definitely more noticeable in terms of noise and throttle response. Maybe because it was a manual, and maybe because it was a smaller / lighter car.

    My opinion is you can do without this mod on the Tiguan.
    Did you do the install yourself? Is it a pretty straight forward process?

    Just did the basic grate removal from air box, cut open the intakes behind the grille (to let direct fresh air in) and put some heavy duty foam inside to block off the hot air from engine side, so the original ducts flow air into engine bay and the other side now feeds the airbox. Easier than buying the block off plate and still keeps functionality.

    Noise increased (as oem car is so quite), part throttle responsiveness is better and feels like it breathes easier through 3000-4500 rpm range.

    Still using factory filter so can get another *cough* 5% increase with after market filter if I need more for stage 1 tune in future.
