Subject: <E28> replacement O2 sensor - CHEAP

I received a great tip from a digester a few months ago. Allen from Simpsonville, SC, THANK YOU! Your suggestion for using the Bosch part that goes in a 5.0 liter 1990 Mustang works great on my big six. And wow what a difference in price. The local parts store wants only $39 for the Bosch part no. 13942 and then asked $132 for the part as it crossed to my BMW 535i. The sensor numbers were almost identical (off by the last digit of 1..ex..0258003008 vice 0258003009 for the new one). Better yet the sensors were identical except for the different wiring plug. Expensive plug folks!!! I just soldered the old plug onto the new sensor and everything worked great. My big six idles alittle better too (it was running rich according to the black tail pipes). Response picked up and I'm hoping for better gas mileage. Once again I receive great tips from this digest...keep it up folks.

Any questions about the sensor, feel free to contact my personal e-mail.
