I purchased this filter for my Golf based on other reviews and the excellent reputation these filters have.
I decided to purchase the standard size filter for the regular Golf air box and not to purchase a CAI system, based on material found in VW forums and other sources. For a 2.0 Golf, this filter with the stock air box should be more than adequate. Possibly I will "smooth" the inside of the air box at some point.
The filter appears to be working just fine, as expected. However, I would have to replace the stock exhaust with a performance system and possibly invest in a chip upgrade to obtain any real horsepower gain, and even then it would be limited. For now, the filter is providing improved air flow and cleaner air - all I need for now.
