New Bosch MAF - with housing $155

For kicks, and the lack of anything esle to do, I checked autohausaz.com for their current price for a fresh MAF for my '99 E55.

Shit, under $155 with free UPS shipping.

I will check upon arrival, but I haven't seen any knockoff's with housing - so good vendor/good bet it's genuine.

At that price, and a easy DIY pop-in, heck of a deal to me.

There are actually knockoffs with the housing. When you get it look inside at the sensor itself, if it says BOSCH on it, it's genuine. You may have to remove the sensor from the assembly to see it clearly.

That said, I've yet to hear anyone buying it from autohausaz that got a knockoff, so I think you're good anyway. I'd not buy even the assembly from ebay, but at these prices, why bother!?!?!?

Apologies for editing your quote, but I try to remember it's a family/public forum.

Take care and enjoy the ride,
Greg

I got the autohaus one, it took 5 minutes to change out and works fine. I did use someone's driving routine for resetting the computer, I'll see if I can find it. It has drive at 50 for 2 minutes coast down ........blah blah blah.....but it worked great. Ran the routine stopped to get coffee turned the car off and when I started it back up the malfunction was gone.
