Where to get a good price on oxygen sensor?

We need an O2 sensor for our 1995 525i. Local parts stores want $250 and BMW in Newmarket wants $340.

I don't mind ordering one and having it mailed to me, but i need to find a better price than this.

Can anyone help me out here?

Thanks.

if it's the same as the E30 one, then just buy a $50-60 one in crappy tire, its the one for Ford Mustang 5.0 by Bosch
Then just splice the wires and connect it to the BMW specific connector. The whole thing took me 30min

is the exact same plug. is jst the 5 series/m50 one has a longer wire. which is almost 100$ difference
e30(m20) on the right e34(m50) on the left.

i can vouch for the e30 having it. I run the mustang sensor and so do many others. It's the same Bosch part, different connector
