OXS for 86 coupe

I agree with David.  The OXS light will come up based on the miles.
Tiaq will need to know how to reset the OXS light; the procedure is
explained in the factory manual which I recommend Tiaq to buy if
he is going to work on his Audi.

   Tiaq is asking about replacement of his OXS (at 80,000 miles).

   My experience with OXS on my VW GTI was that they "say you must replace it
   when the light comes on", but in my experience, this was a mileage based
   requirement, not a part-failure related one.

   In other words, you may want to determine if your OXS is actually broken.

   If your mileage, performance and emissions are OK, then my opinion is to not
   replace it.  If you are experiencing problems in these areas which has been
   traced to the OXS then it is replacement time.

   (In my case, my first one still works fine (117,000 miles)!

   Maybe this'll save you some $$
