Some ppl fail to c the connection between steptronic and maf sensor but there is a strong connection.
Glad u finally got it sorted. Contracts.

Yup, You are right. I couldn't believe that MAF would cause this because it has been replaced before I purchased the car. Now I know for sure. I did some research and there are some cheapo on ebay (non genuine for) and some genuine. Massive price differences though. $80 (with shipping for n/gen.) and probably around $200+ for genuine. Would you know if its worth investing into genuine one?
sorry for being such a pain in the a**
