Tony, I bought mine from www.germanautoparts.com for $89 a few years back, unless the price has changed dramatically it should be cheaper than what you listed below.

The dealer part number is correct: 034 905 161
I think the Bosch part number is: 0 232 101 020

I have pics of my install if you need them...

Cheers, /Jamu.

Hi learned group,

May CPS has given up the ghost and and looking to replace the hall sensor.
My research shows that the device used, the Siemens HKZ101 hall effect vane
sensor, ws discontinued in 1998. BUT, further research also found that it is
used in many other cars like the distributor cap of the 5000QT.

Can anyone confirm that a 5000QT distributor cap really does have the HKZ101
(or HKZ121) hall sender in it, cos these are really cheap. New CPS from
dealer is c$414.

And contrary to what Igor thinks, unfortunately CPS' can blow even though
there are no moving parts - it's semiconductor.
