What was the shipping charges? Coz they are charging $51 for express delivery, is it worth it?

I opted for standard shipping as I wasn't in any rush.. Shipping was around 3.00 and the part was 17.45. Again this was ordered from Cars245.. Not sure what other vendors are charging..

Well they say only can do express shipping to my address, no standard shipping option for me. Other vendors are charging more on shipping.

No. I did notice the holes though. It snapped in pretty firmly so I don't think it's going anywhere. Will probably find some screws just in case.

I'm still not sold on that block off. I feel like it's good to let the engine bay get some more air in. I just kept the center blocked off and added some more openings for the fresh air to get into the intake. I still need to clean it up a bit more

Cutting out the drivers side inlets really does make a noticeable difference in acceleration once the car adjusts to the change. I doubt it makes any more power but it definitely spools quicker and highway acceleration is smoother with or without a downshift.

I really don't know why it wouldn't be open from the factory on any model. It only has slightly more growl and the turbo still isn't as loud as it on my father's B7 Passat with older style long intake tube, so it can't be NVH.

I was finally able to finish my stock CAI. The passenger side is now blocked off from the engine side. I opened it up the driver side. AFE dry filter and grate removed since the car was new.

Have you noticed any inconsistent staining to your filter with the snow guard removed in those 2 years? I think the snow guard is also supposed to "spread" the airflow evenly across the filter but never got confirmation on that.

I usually wash my filter after every 6months, nothing sort of staining like on my other car 2016 Honda Civic 1.5T.
