Really?? Well then what am I thinking of? There was definitely something like this that could be done. A sensor that could be adapted with new wiring from a 325 to a 328 and it was much cheaper.

You can buy a universal Bosch O2 sensor for like $30 and wire it up to OBDI BMWs (which are also Bosch, just more expensive) ... that's probably what you're thinking of.

why dont you guys just get the OEM parts for your cars...if O2 sensors are $$$ issus then get something you can afford. mixing around things can do more harm then good.

dont cut corners get what is right and the car will treat you right

Dr. Flyview is probably thinking of earlier mustang O2s being compatible with OBD1 E36 with the swapping of the connector.

taxi615.....kinda curious as to your logic. Why would a person go out and spend $400 on an O2 at trade cost when you can go and get the same one re-boxed from an aftermarket supplier for $65 trade cost??

OP If you want a good deal on sensors go to your local Partsource and as for BWD O2 sensors. You want 2 upstreams because they are half the price of the downstreams and compatible in both locations. Why waste your hard earned money when you dont need to??

I was saying because it seems to me some guy's what to mod sensors I agree that you dont have to spend all that hard earned cash on OEM sensors but dont start moding sensor to save a few here and there...that was my point
