Mike, that particular MAF I was speaking about comes from an official Bosch
center and is sold by Bosch with a 1-year warranty as a Bosch part, thus no
issues with fake/badly rebuilt items here AFAIK. Unfortunately I don't know
of anyone either who can rebuild the MAFs, all I can suppose is that Bosch
is refurbishing them and then reselling them...

I'll ask for an exchange PN for your 928 MAF and keep you posted, it would
be cool indeed to be able to source them as exchange but I'm not sure if
that would work given the relatively low sales volume and (I assume) low
failure rate....
