Hello there,

I am driving a Polo 6C GTI,

I am thinking of fitting one but just doing my homework before doing something which I might regret in a few months from now.

I imagine that the 6C Polo GTi has a recirculating DV so it is not the best idea to fit a DV that dumps to atmosphere if this is what you were looking at.
