    Yes, the Bosch 'Hot Film' Air Mass Sensor is a sh*t design and the very thing it measures breaks it

    Had the chance to fit my MAF sensor at the weekend and i must say it feels a lot different to drive, i had obviously got used to it over time. Its generally smoother and more enjoyable to drive, it definitely pulls stronger now too which is a bonus!!

    Joe you hit the nail on the head, had to exchange my old one. Apparently they have modified them since my car was built so hopefully this one will last!!

    Good work Adam, I didn't notice my MAF being faulty neither in my S3, but it was changed whilst the remap was being done, so I didn't notice the improvement, just an extra 50 odd BHP increase LOL, which was phenominal!

    An update on the aftermarket MAF sensor which I bought for my Passat TDI, it worked well for 1 month, then there was signs of the power being pulled back higher up the rev range, the quality of the connector on the actual sensor isn't as good as the OE and slightly deformed the pins on the plug, which I have now rectified, so all back to normal.
