I am considering a new MAF for my 3.2, have spoken to Audi and they quoted Ł126-18 on an exchange basis. I have had a look at the Euro Car Parts website and they are quoting Ł77.73 and a Ł29.38 surcharge.
They have the following clause about surcharges....
Certain items that we carry here at Euro Car Parts have been reconditioned. These items will carry an additional 'Surcharge' amount or 'Refundable Deposit'. This cost is automatically added to your Shopping Basket when you select a reconditioned item.
When we receive your old unit back, the surcharge amount will be refunded to you as soon as the item has been checked by our returns department.
Before returning your old unit please ensure that it is in a re-serviceable condition. For example, Caliper casings should not be badly damaged or broken. Euro Car Parts reserves the right not to refund the surcharge if it is found that the unit is unserviceable
Does this mean that the part that I would be buying is 'reconditioned' and not a new part?! Also what if I didn't return my old unit, would I just lose my surcharge?!
