    Genuine MAF for sure.

    After market versions just don't last and often give you a very flat throttle response.

    Peace of mind would be to go genuine also for the coil pack.

    Stick with genuine being a "s"

    Its worth remembering that there are very few real bargains,and often it's true to say "buy cheap,buy twice".

    If you plan on any remapping,it's worth buying proper OEM parts,as things like plugs,coilpacks and MAFs are those most likely to fail.

    Most of us consider the OEM packs to be as good as you'll need,and my car has OEM packs fitted,and the benefits from things like the shockingly expensive Okada coilpacks even,are not really seen on the S3 engine.
