Air Mass Sensor recommendations please?

Tue Feb 12, 2019 2:31 pm

2008 X5 Msport E70 model:

3FF1 Air Mass Sensor error code has popped up again and it's the Air Flow Mass Sensor so need to replace it.

Can not afford to buy OEM from the dealers so looking else where to source the part.

Euro-parts as selling them at £200+
E bay differ from £25 to £200+

Why such a difference in prices?

Any recommendations and feed back greatly appropriated.

Thanks

Chinese copy to genuine OEM part (not in a BMW badged box). Not sure who makes the OEM one.

Bought cheap ebay ones before for a 330d with 1 year guarantee , replaced 4 times in a year under warranty gave up 4th time as they just sent out a broken one ! don't believe the positive feedback remember people leave it when it arrives and they work for about a month :headbang:
Not sure what you should buy for the e70 other than not a 25 quid one !
