I did buy a generic one but find it hard to believe the after a month it will start behaving like the old 1 :( any ideas? Must I replace it with a genuine one? I'm worried I spend the extra money and then the car just eats that maf aswell. Not to sure what I should do :?:
Its quite a well talked about topic, the aftermarket vs OEM MAF. The cheap aftermarket ones are not well known for lasting as long as a genuine one.
