the lowest priced wide band o2 sensor I could find was $309 from a local store, it wasn't an NGK, but the brand that NGK makes o2 sensors under, so it was the same as what you get if you buy from honda, only you save about $125 compared to the dealer, if you want to save a bunch of money find a friend who works at an auto parts store, that is my plan for next time, and convince them to use their employ discount for you.

That is where I got mine. (on Matts finding it for me)

It is the same one I would have gotton from honda for $300+. Only complaint I had was it was packaged kinda crappy for shipping but it did make it in one piece.

Has anyone looked into the Bosch units (LSU4.2)? I know that PLX sells two types of wideband controllers - one which uses the NTK sensor and the other that uses the Bosch sensor. I think the controller that uses the Bosch sensor is a little more, but the Bosch sensor is WAY less expensive (PLX sells them for $79 ea). My old turbo setup was tuned using a Bosch sensor, and I had great results. The ECU should be able to read this sensor, correct?

I'm all for staying OEM with NTK, but if money is an issue, look into getting the Bosch sensor.

From the PLX website (www.plxdevices.com):

Bosch LSU4/LSU4.2 Sensor Info:

This sensor is more commercially available than the NTK and is used in production cars such as, Porche, Audi, VW, Subaru, Cadillac, and Volvo. Its performance, accuracy and cost make it the ideal sensor for today's tuning needs.

I too got screwed by OxygenSensor.net.

Paid $220 for the sensors, did not receive anything after 3 weeks. They never replied to any of my five or so emails. I finally filed a claim through pay-pal and the guy replied that he never got my order due to computer problems on his side. I got refund, but a week later paypal reversed the refund, cauze the guy did not have enough money in the bank to clear the payment, so pay pal gave me $145 back and is still trying to collect the rest. I tried to contact OxygenSensor.net a few times since then, but they don't respond to emails and there is no phone number listed.

I think that shop is a one guy operation - his name is Matthew Barchard. Anybody got his phone number? I'd call an haras him a few time to get the rest of my money back. Defenetely would not recomend dealing with this guy.

I now ordered O2 sensor for my VX from quality_auto_parts:
http://myworld.ebay.com/ebaymotors/quality_auto_parts
He's selling them for $178 incl. shipping

Please let us know how smooth your purchase goes.
I am looking to purchase a L1H1 sometime later this month and would like to save a 'few' dollars.

Update: got a new O2 sensor from ebay quality_auto_parts a couple days ago. Looks like the right sensor - it fixed my hesitation issue and works fine as far as I can tell, so I'd recommend them.

Also, I'm still trying to collect my 70 bucks from oxygensensor.net - what a scam.

Thanks for the update!

good luck on your refund as well.

seems like we might have a hope for somewhat cheaper O2 replacements.
