oxygen sensors - can you replace/splice in universal ones?

The full OEM bosch units are very expensive, has anyone bought universal ones and just spliced them in to the stock harness? If so any details would be great!

for reference, here are a bunch that supposedly work with the 335:

I'd like an answer for this as well! The super ultra special BMW O2 sensors are wayyyyyy overpriced.

i'm running the spliced on O2 sensors (Bosch) from Autozone. It's the same one as OEM but splice on instead of plug in connector. I've had it for over a year now..

I've been using the spliced universal one from Bosch on my 1 of my rear O2 sensor, it's been working great so far. Part # 15733.

front sensors are wideband BOSCH LSU 4.9 sensors

You can find the generic bosch sensor, it has the same connector as the BMW (BOSCH invented this connector)

Rear ones are standard narrow band, you can replace with any you find

it would be really nice if you could also source the plug and integrate that into a PnP option at much lower cost.

hell I'll make em and sell em

Tischer is cheaper if you're going for the whole sensor/harness replacement, i think they're $177 vs. 221

here is the one you're talking about:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...d=260675394656

from a bosch website:
Quote:
Wide Band oxygen sensors may also be referred to as 5 Wire oxygen sensor, Lambda sensors, Lean Burn oxygen sensors and Air/Fuel sensors (although not all Air/Fuel sensors are wide band).
if our fronts are wideband, they must be 5 wire right? someone said our fronts are 4 wire... can someone confirm 100% which is correct and if the sensor from the link above will work

here are the parts bosch lists for the 335:
http://www.boschautoparts.com/Vehicl...=OxygenSensors

including the 5-wire a/f wideband upstream sensors:

Quote:
part number: 17098
Wideband A/F Sensor - OE Type - Exact Fit - Upstream Sensor O2 sensor located in front manifold / exhaust pipe; 5 Wire; Wideband A/F; Check / Replace Interval: 100,000 Miles

part number: 17099
Wideband A/F Sensor - OE Type - Exact Fit - Upstream Sensor O2 sensor located in rear manifold / exhaust pipe; 5 Wire; Wideband A/F; Check / Replace Interval: 100,000 Miles

so i think this should be good:

I confirm that the bosh LSU4.9 is the same as BMW

the only difference may be the wire length.
The connector is the same. I compared it

A vendor should make a plug and play harness and clean up, they did this on my last car.
