TidyTransporters,T4srus,Brickworks or ebay would be a good starting point. Wont see much difference with just a filter but will get a wooshing noise from a induction kit. Many people say that a good clean standard element in the std airbox is as good as any.
Do a search on here before parting with your money.

I was of the impression that on a small injected petrol car. Nova fiesta etc used by the young folks and fitted with an induction kit this would reduce the mpg of the car albeit giving it a better sound.

I've read someone however that if I fit an induction kit to my 2.5tdi t4 velle that it will increase power, drivability and mpg???
Whiilst i'm aware any improvement in performace would be barely noticiable can anyone confirm if it would improve my mpg or not???

Cheers

Panel filters KN(usa manufactured) or Pipercross (UK manufactured) are good with the stock air box coupled up with an EGR power pipe and decent freeer flowing exhaust will improve motor effiency and BHP and therefore MPG.

But you won't gain much that would be noticable with a filter on it's own,
