    Lambda Sensor / O2 Sensor Replacement?

    Hi, I have an APY s3 which only requires 1 Lambda Sensor (pre cat). Im trying to shop around to find the best deal on a new unit. My local Auto Factors can supply me with the required part for about £40, the only issue is this is a Febi part and not a bosch. My local TPS have Quoted me £120 for a new bosch unit (part number 02580060332).
    My questions is: is it essential that i buy a bosch unit over the Febi part? does any1 have any views on this please?

    GSF cant supply a Bosch unit. ECP can only supply me with a Bosch unit where i have to manually wire it in myself. is this easy to do?

    I can get an NGK unit (direct fit) for £75. ive always used NGK on my MotoX bikes and found them to excellent and very trustworth parts, but again im unsure when compared to a bosch unit.

    Buy a Bosch one from ECP. Is it easy to do? Yes - if you don't want to solder just use crimp connectors and stash them behind the heat shield.

    For an extra bonus use the discount code UKMK425 to get 25% off.
