Forget the dealership! they have got to be kidding me....$230 to replace ONE O2 sensor. I bought a Hayne's E36 manual, the O2 socket, and a new sensor....140.00 total!

borrow o2 sockets at local autozone for free... just $15 returnable deposit.

for 1995 and earlier: only one sensor (before cat) at autozone.com is around $62.99 a piece delivered - cheapest i have scouted for bosch with oem type connectors, so its plug and play. if you get it at store, they charge $6 s&h

for 1996 and later: same before cat sensor as above, plus one more after cat. OEM, right guys, OEM after cat sensor for $142 delivered through UPS at autopartsworld.com -best value for money.

changed both sensors a week ago and turned out perfect!
