    If you getting the maf from vw just tell them the number you have on your current maf.

    Dude... just buy a new one... go to GSF or ECP as they are around 60/70 quid exchange for a Bosch sensor...

    Fairly sure the eBay one (0 280 217 121) is for an A3...

    ECU will cope with it being unplugged... fuel economy etc may be affected of course but just be sensible... they are designed to fall back on 'safe' settings if a sensor goes down...
