I doubt it, Its a good upgrade if you are stock and don't have an intake but I wouldn't replace the old carbonio for the new system. Too expensive IMO.

I doubt much people would, you can get a second hand old version of the intake for $150. Tough price to justify.

Yes, i had the APR intake. It was okay.

I love the IE intake sounds so awesome and looks badass, water being sucked up through the open filter is not a thing to worry about, i don't thing anyone has ever locked or damaged their engine doing that (here). With that reasoning you can suck up water through APR's intake also sure it'll be harder but the opening is enough for water to get through

Also the way the IE intake sits, its sealed when the hood is close, the only possible way i could thing that someone could suck up water is if they were driving around without fender liners and went into a semi deep puddle.

Trust me I had a carbonio and replaced it with the I.E. after it turned yellow and brittle. The I.E. has a Venturi design where it boosts the air flow. Filter on the IE is also easy to clean. And don't worry what people might tell you on the bracket for the I.E. intake. It's not an issue at all.

I like the design but eventually it turning yellow and being quiet is a turn off

I like the new Intakes, the carbon fiber weave is the same as the MK7 intake's and after a few years of use and abuse, no yellowing.

If anyone is interested in the OLD intakes, we have them on sale right now!

Unless you try to ford water that goes past your bumper, which would be dumb to begin with, there's really no need to worry with any intake.
