    Ouch, that's a rather expensive slip of a finger/cloth :(

    Get a new one from Audi, at least you'll have some chance of getting a replacement if it brakes 2 miles down the road and it'll be an OEM part with some warranty(feel free to correct me on this one).

    My S3 one was around the £70/£80 mark exchange from Audi... tbh I wouldn't bother getting one from anywhere else... at a push you can try GSF and they will be a bit cheaper than the Audi part but even though it will be a genuine Bosch part they never seem to be as reliable as one from Audi... I have had both btw...

    will they accept mine as an exchange? I only say this as the actual small flap that sits inside the housing now has a split down it.

    Can't see why not... as long as the housing looks ok it should all be good... you have two chances ;P

    Yeah, take it easy of course but the ECU will go into a 'safe' mode any way..

    BTW, don't tell them you cleaned it ;P

    I wouldn't bother saying anything mate... next to oil MAF's are probably the next best seller as they break so often LOL (I am on my third in 15 months and due to change it again..)
