Mihnea -

Two things, I have from time to time heard "rumors" there were private party
(i.e. non-Bosch) persons or places that would attempt to "rebuilt"
defective/broken hot wire MAFs.  So far, my limited attempts to verify &/or
locate such a service have failed to find any such person or business.  By
all means, if some one knows of one, it would be great if they could share
it with the lists.

2nd, I unfortunately now happen to have a brand new larger MAF which
succumbed to Hot Wire failure in testing.  Do you have any idea if the Bosch
special parts "exchange" program might also apply to the larger 86mm 928/WMB
M5 Bosch PN# 0-280-214-001 MAF as well?

It is the exact same MAF, possibly rebuilt but for a much nicer price than
the original one... Apparently it isn't available in the US but I'll try to
work something out with Scott M in order to have them available in the US!
Unfortunately it isn't hot film but that's not needed anyway...
