It says it should fit & does look like it would fit, but don't quote me, LOL!!  :grin:

However it does go against my motto of 'You get what you pay for', though.  I'd ask him if it was an oil based filter, as the oil has a tendency to clog up the MAF sensors on our 1.8 T's (don't tell him that bit, as you want an honest answer).  :wink:

i just got a piper cross panel filter but was unsure at first if there was any difference but after a good few runs i am feeling that my 1.8T is running better than ever giving more responsive throttle etc but has not affected mpg . cant complain really

that looks shocking quality (and I've sold some shi7 in the past!!).... and with induction kits.if you cant get a really good cold air flow it can make cars loose power and like some have posted here..panel filter and modified airbox is possibly best bet!
