Hi Borbus, the unit was $209, $85 shipping, and £59 import duty, total in GBP £276.

Really worthwhile saving😀

Having this done on my Mk6 next week whilst it's in for it's major service.  Didn't go down the imported route, but I do think it's a worthwhile saving if you either want to fit it yourself or have a friendly mechanic.  :smiley:

Can't complain, had the GTI 6 years and this is the first real failure.

Hi all, I am having an intermittent P2015 code on my MK6, looking to just get the updated manifold fitted before it goes for good and I have found one on eBay for £125.00 but it’s made by NTY and not genuine VW. Would you recommend fitting only a genuine VW manifold  or would the NTY manifold be ok? Not sure if anyone else has fitted one of these to theirs or whether anyone has any advice. Feedback would be much appreciated 😃👍🏻

Looking at the choices: you have a manifold of unknown quality (unless you get some feedback) that may or may not be an updated version for £125 or an oem one for £276 if you get one from the USA. Depends on your finances but if you can afford it the second option looks the better one if you intend to keep the car.
