Default i think i messed up..

i just bought a new MAF for my 2000 golf tdi. i bought this one,
http://www.worldimpex.com/item_detail.html?sku=207480
when i bought it i was just thinking that it was gonna be better then the bosch one and now that i look at the specs it doesnt even say that its for a golf. another thing is that when i got it the part looks like this one,
http://www.worldimpex.com/item_detail.html?sku=228252
which is what i recieved since it plainly says BOSCH on it. without really thinking about it i installed it yesterday.. the powers back and my car drives fine but is this okay for me to have installed? i mean it doesnt say its for a golf.
thanks

Its fine for your car. Great price too.

I dunno why it doesn't say its for the Golf on Impex. Its the exact same motor for the Jetta and New Beetle for MY2000.

Either one will work.

A Jetta is a Golf with a trunk, and different fenders, headlights, hood, and grille. Therefore, if it works on a Jetta, it works on a Golf.

Yeah but because of the different drag coefficients, they MUST be calibrated differently

Say, does anyone know how to change turn signal fluid?

Check the brakes lights. One of them might be out...
