BobT what more butchering will the WK2 need than any other 4x4?, every vehicle that a snorkel is available needs holes cut in body work.
We are yet to see the snorkel design, path or cost for the WK2.
Airflow have said they can fit a snorkel to the WK2 with out cutting through the sub frame and still gain a 10-15% improvement in performance. If you don't need or want a snorkel that's fine!, but please don't scare others with words like "butchering" when there is no evidence the WK2 snorkel will require any more body modification than other current 4x4 models,
We've all been complaining about no after market accessories for the WK2, now here is a company that is willing to make a snorkel for the WK2, so let's get behind them!.
If you don't want or need one that's fine, but please don't frighten others off needlessly
