A fellow Alfista here in Sweden started importing MAFs from Austria some years ago. They come from the same factory as the ones marked Bosch, it's just that without the Bosch label they are sold for a fraction of the price. His in price was about 10% of what Bosch branded units was sold for by others in Sweden.
Soon others in Germany and the UK started doing the same as he did, and it wasn't any business for him anymore. He sold a couple of hundred units before he quit.
When this question was up on a Swedish forum some week ago he answerd like this:
Buy from ebay.de or ebay.co.uk and choose a seller with good feedback.
He isn't in the business anymore and has no reason to not tell the truth, but it's of course up to the individual where he chooses to buy his MAF.
