The warranty was recently extended on the MAF .Check it out at a dealer you might get some cash back.

It is good for the second owner, but only to 7 years or 70k... may still want to try. I'd send a letter and a copy of the bull to VWoA, and tell them that you know they are a POS unit, and they extended the warranty just to prevent a "coil pack" type incident.

I e-mailed you the warranty extension.

don't forget to mention you know that they have reduced the price of the 2.0 and Tdi MAFS to ~15% because of an even higher failure rate than on the 1.8T. They are all Bosch components, and given their record, a very poor design.

So did I get this right ... in 2 years you havent recharged your K&N?
I did mine on my 99 1.8T after 1 year and it was filthy.
Either way I dont think this would have caused MAF to fail and as long as you recharge properly then you wont have a problem.
