Just wondering were the cheapest places to buy these would be? I am the worst at searching online and can only find them at the tm tuning but that takes 14-20 days to get them and i would like to cut that down by a little if at all possible. [help]

They add an average of 10 horsepower. [fish]

I think they are purely aesthetic...

Holy thread revival. But....has anyone noticed that most vendors more or less doubled the price on these lately? Oh well, I got mine used for like $25 on the 'tex.

Oh well, I'm not getting them until I get a fmic with red hoses, so I can show them off a little.

Mk5 production ended, so these parts become much more expensive and in higher demand.

The purpose of these is to keep the DSG tranny cooler. The only thing side-mounted on our cars is the horn.

Thx DJ. I thought they would aid in brake cooling. DSG cooling sounds much more logical. Living in Houston cooling can be a serious issue. Plus with the DSG heat sensor recall issue they may be worth the money. They do look good as well.
