Default Cheap Oxygen Sensors - 03-29-2015, 07:49 PM

So I've been looking around on AliExpress a lot after buying some cool tablets to try out for flashing purposes, and an add for these randomly popped up.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Oxyge...810387122.html

Seems to be the correct part number...mine are going bad, so I might order a couple and try them out.

I wouldn't risk getting them from there. I recently got mine from amazon.

I wouldn't risk wasting my time & money on some random O2 sensor claiming to be OEM compatible. Especially since it's not a common item to replace, just do it right once and forget about it.

No way I'd take that chance. They're just such a PITA to replace, it's not worth the hassle to save a little money.

As far as i know. Its just a 5 wire bosch sensor. Just buy one without an oem plug and cut solder and shrink wrap the harness from the old sensor to knew. Im pretty sure all the wires are the same too. I did this with my jetta..but not sure it works on these cars

I've heard it isn't possible to do this with the pre *** bosch/bmw lambda sensors because of the particular tolerances/calibrations that differ from plug to plug. Its just eaasier to replace it for around $110 on amazon.
