Ahem, yes, AudiConnection "sent me a new O2 sensor" - I just didn't mention
that it was sent by special courier! Nor that the "special courier" did
diagnostic work on my engine to ensure that we were replacing the correct
part - outside - in the rain.

I also failed to mention that the same "special courier" previously had
spent a couple of hours on long-distance-via-phone engine diagnosis and
code-pulling assistance to this newbie mechanic, to find out what ailed the
mighty V8, prior to hand-delivering the new O2 sensor.

You bet I'll recommend this outfit to anyone who asks - and to a few ho
don't ask!

How lucky that the Grattan event happened to be nearby  ;-)
