I think I'd shop around first... No way that these puppies will cost
anything near that.

I bought an OEM sensor from Carlsen for about $70 or so w/ the list
discount. I also purchased a Bosch 3 wire sensor for $30 that I used
w/ the modified FI system on my BMW motorcycle.

These sensors are mechanically and electrically the same. The difference
is in the plug end. One has an Audi plug (works nicely with an Audi
harness), the other has a Ford plug (works nicely on an '88 V8 Mustang
I'm told)

The white wires are the resistive element (heater) and the black wire
is the signal. Stick a new one in and YMWV!!!
