ECS Tuning MK7 / MK7.5 GTI / Golf R Luft-Technik Air Inlet Scoop Kit (Left & right / Red) 

Enhance the intake system on your 2015+ Volkswagen GTI or Golf R to its fullest potential with our ECS Tuning Performance Air Inlet Scoops! Strategically placed within the grille, these help to grab and direct ambient air right into your aftermarket or modified OEM intake system's opening. 

The factory grille leaves provisions that allow intake air into the inlet duct on the passenger side but leaves out a direct flow-path to the air inlet on the driver's side. From aftermarket dual air intake ducts to DIY'ers modifying their OEM grille to allow for a more direct route on the driver's side, our Product Development Team saw an opportunity to serve the aftermarket with a clean, OEM-type solution that not only provides for a cleaner install, but directs cool outside air directly into the air intake passage(s).

To help you achieve the best results during installation each kit includes an adhesive-backed vinyl trim template for both left and right side positions that align to OEM features on the grille. Once in place, the scoop opening can then be easily cut open with a Dremel or hack saw/drill combo.
