    I've always found Andrew Page good for MAF sensors, but like Tuffty said, model etc may help

    As Tuffty said, any good motor factors will do one in that case!!

    The last MAF I bought for my AMK S3 cost me £70 (exchange) IIRC from GSF... its a genuine Bosch one... don't be tempted to by a copy MAF...

    CCT? you mean a coolant temp sensor? personally for the very little extra cost for a CTS from teh dealer I would go for that... have seen too many GSF and ECP ones fail too quickly tbh...

    If you think you need a cam chain tensioner then I would make sure you actually do as on the AMK they are VVT and around 350+vat from anywahere

    I had a cheap eBay one on for a little while (£120) but kept throwing a setpoint not reached code so I changed it back to the old one... only reason I changed it was to eliminate it as a source of a rattle I had that turned out to be small ends (non rifle drilled rods)

    GSF do sell them (and I believe they are from teh OE manufacturer) but they are still around the 350 mark...
