Your car can have one of two fuel filters, although it's highly likely it's this one: https://www.idparts.com/fuel-filter-...jaa-p-694.html. Look at the illustration that shows how the appearance of the canister differs between the two to verify yours is the "late" one.

I'd go with a known brand that's an OE supplier to VW. MANN, MAHLE, UFI, or Hengst. And the o-ring should be changed with each filter swap.

Thanks for posting. the fuel filter i posted is from Carquest its a 10 Micron filter
cost $26.00 i will give VW dealer a call if oem filter is a lower micron filter than obviously its a better made filter worth getting.
