I ran one for a long time, but you have to be careful of bigger puddles, the filter sits behind the bumper and is only about 2 foot off the floor (if that)
I just have a 90 degree dog leg tube off ebay and a filter on the end, sits near the battery and seems much better
The tube was around £20 off ebay and is 3'' as opposed to the 2.5'' that I think the one you linked to
ARZ K03s, Oettinger Side Skirts, R32 front, Carbon stage 2, Forge 007p (yellow spring), Forge Actuator (yellow spring), Pipercross panel filter with DSG parts, N249 and N112 deleted, SAI deleted, Carbon canister deleted, Rear wiper deleted, Long Life turbo back custom exhaust with 200 cell sports cat, VR6/G60 clutch kit, Creation Motorsport TIP, Catch can, 'Wellycooler', K04 charge pipe, S3 ported inlet manifold - looks pretty standard on the outside though :)
