    am I being bumped here??

    My car has lit up like a Xmas tree,traction and engine management light have been on for a few weeks now.took it to my usual mechanic to be scanned.turns out the maf won't flow more than 0.005g so seems pretty obvious its dead. Now I was expecting a replacement to be £50ish.spoke to the main guy there and he said £200! Never replaced one before but it ain't hard at all.when you get a replacement,do you just get the sensor on its own or the housing with it? Surely 200 is a but much or am I just being tight?
    Word!!!

    Marty, excuse my ignorance, but is yours an AGU or AUM? i honestly forget!

    if it's an AGU, Audi will no longer to them on exchance, and it's £240 for a brand new one. GSF will do them on exchange though for about £80-90.

    if it's AUM, then audi will still do them on exchange, and they're £80 and you hand your dead one back.

    I'd go with this for the £10 difference to be honest. I get mine from my local motor factor. On my third one after 60k miles, old one still works @95%, that 5% gave me 6-8bhp on the rollers.
