If you learn how to use a crimp tool or a soldering iron, the price will go down 4 fold.

You typically don't have to replace the two rear sensors unless you want to spend extra money. But I could be wrong, that just seemed to be the consensus out there. Is that code specific for the rears as well?

I got mine from my local German parts supplier but basically paid retail of $175 each, same as Autopartsway for OEM replacements. Meh.

I'm sure there are other cheaper DIY options to do them. Installation was about 40 min including jacking the car up.
