A decent filter setup has, and always will be, one of the great ‘first mods’. And that’s a fact.

More air flows into the engine, which means more fuel can be chucked for a bigger bang and more power, simple enough, eh? Well, yes and no.

The key really is to find a proven, good-quality setup, or you’ll find that you can actually loose power.

This new Jetstream kit, for the awesome little 6C Polo GTI, is easily one of the best out there.

It includes a high-flow foam filter and enlarged turbo elbow for maximum airflow, along with (perhaps most importantly) a laser-cut heat shield to help keep intake temperatures down.

A cracking bit of kit that will also fit the Audi A1 and MK5 Seat Ibiza Cupra. Nice.

Price £270
