If you are considering a CAI for performance gains... I would think twice and look closely at the setup of your OEM intake. Near the passenger headlight their is a snout that heads towards your air filter. Many owners have found this to be blocked from the factory. You can open it up with a small cutting wheel (like a dremel or other rotary tool).

Aftermarket CAI without proper heat shielding are prone to heat soak. This heat soak will also soak power away from your turbocharged (assuming since you have a GLS but did not mention the motor) engine. The colder the charge you can give the motor the better.

Check this thread for more info on the snout near your passenger headlight: http://www.clubb5.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=73362&highlight=
