    i've done it to mine and it is worth it, it'll cost you a fiver for the isopropanol from maplins or a new maf is in the region of £60 from a dealers IIRC.

    I did mine and it didn't make any difference. Luckily I use IPA at work so no cost for me.

    I never noticed a thing either + i clean my inlet manifold / throttle body. No difference at all. I booked my car in with Jabba yesterday & i mentioned it wasnt idling to well (only +/- 200-300 rpm) they asked if i recaliberated it ? i assumed the car did this by itself cause i disconnected the battery also.
