Red face Maf sensor replacement !!!

I am a proud owner of a 1999 2.7 tiptronic Boxster and I'm replacing the Bosch MAF sensor .
My sensor is a 99660612400 , but everywhere I check it says it should be 99660612300 !!!!
HELP PLEASE ???
I have sent for a replacement with the code on the existing one i.e. 99660612400!

I hope this one is ok

As I recall, the 2.7 didn't come out until the 2000 model year (albeit, they were manufactured from August of 1999). If yours is a 1999 model year, it should be a 2.5.

Thaks Brad ,

well I presume it was manufactured in 1999 and is actually a 2000 model.

It sure is a 2.7 168Kw

Look at Hurdi's location and recall that model years differ from country to country. As sometimes do pollution control devices used.

So we need to be careful about assuming that a set of facts we know are right for the US are right for him.

Also recall that, in the US, there was a change in MAF used about mid-2000 (could be thought of as in the first year of the 2.7). We went from the 124.00 to the 125.00. The 123.00 was used in the US from '97 thru '99 in the 2.5s.

And if it is a 124 you have, the Bosche part numbers are 0.280.219.009 (Sometimes sold as B3130-128499)

Thank you all for your time and advice .
Just as a point of interest , my Boxster was 1st registered in October 1999 , but is a 2000 model i.e. 2.7 litre 168 Kw tiptronic . It has E-gas and that is the reason why the MAF is a 99660612400 Bosch No. 0280218009 ( in Europe )
I believe that to be able to use a 12500 MAF , I would have to upgrade the DME at the workshop and this costs approx 1000. So , I will stick to the 12400 lolol .

Again , thanks All for your support and advice

You can't go wrong with replacing the MAF with the same one you have. If it worked before it failed then a new one will work. On my 2k, under warranty, Porsche changed the DME and upgraded to a newer MAF, but unless you are sure the DME was upgraded, go with the MAF that is in your car now.
