    Well the MAF is fooked & drinking mote than a 19 year old lad on his 1st night in Ibiza!! There's a local VW Breakers near me that has just about everything so I'm gonna grab 1 from there. Engine is a standard 1.8t with a KO3S at the min but will very shortly be getting the main bit's & bob's replaced I.E. FMIC, Decat, Exhaust etc. So what MAF should I buy that will match the mod's that will be going on but will also run ok on the Car as it is at the min without messing things up?! Or is it a case of buy a normal size 1 for now & then have to replace it again in a few weeks when I do the other stuff?

    Only need to upsize the MAF tube if you are going for a K03 hybrid or K04 sized turbo.. if sticking to a K03/K03s then std MAF is all you need

    What engine code is your car? no point in buying a MAF from a breakers tbh... they are a service part IMO and its false economy to buy anything other than new

    Right, I see that you can get a Bosch 1 for around £80 but also their listed for around £200+. Are the cheaper 1s defo gonna be genuine Bosch items? Also, how bad are these cheaper copies? Is it that they don't work or just don't last to long?

    only use bosch

    ebay ones for £20 may make it run worse

    Ask the seller dude if they're OEM Bosch and brand new items - it's not like we have the link to check it out for you so can't defo confirm if they are :think:
