Ive never had any luck with cleaning a maf meter. I cleaned the one I changed on the 323i just for kicks but it didn't help it any.

As soon as I get all of my parts together and tear in to it, I may be able to add to that VSS thread.

Iím hoping to have everything together and to be able to get started on it within the next two weeks ish.

Yep and if someone told me to change my maf back then or even suggested it I wouldn't of done it without more to go on

So that leaves "its old and couldn't hurt" or "at least I will have a spare if that isn't it".

Again I cant promise it will fix it but it did for me.

The one I went with was around $130 or something from oem bimmerparts.

Finally got my M3 wheel installed.

Put on a cheap eBay leather wheel wrap and wrapped the trim to somewhat match my imola trim.
