Default Intake for 2012

Best intake to buy for a 2012 beetle turbo?

Any thoughts from veteran tuners?

Forge Motorsports makes a carbon fiber, twin intake system for the Golf R, and it bolts directly up to the 2012 Turbo Beetle.

Forge Motorsport Twin Air Intake for VW Golf R

Costs a bit though.

Or the single-intake version...

Hope that helps
When VWVortex was given a 2012 Beetle before it came out, to play with, they added one of those twin intake systems, said it bolted right in with no issues and was great.

You can read more about that here.. VWvortex Beetle RS Project - Stage I

For $500+ I would rather get a new camshaft custom cut. Hell you can even do a Nos setup for $500.
