    Default Price of BMW oxygen sensor $725 AUD

    What a freakin rip. I dont mind buying genuine if there are somewhere near aftermarket price tags (20 to 50% more) but when its this much more I think they are asking too much. Does anyone know where to get this part from a 'known and reliable' online store who are willing to ship O/S to Australia?? Thanks in advance for saving 1 weeks wage on a single part!

    I bought a Bosch O2 sensor from BMA for about AUD $200 including delivery. ( www.bmaparts.com ).

    Speak with Patrick.

    I couldn't believe the prices either.

    Edit : closer to $ 180

    I think oxygensensors.com (don't know if thats the exact url) has the best prices. they are around usd$80 for our cars. I looked into this a while ago. Do a search.

    I feel like emailing this site to BMW and telling them that $525 more for the same BOSH part is bullcrap. Even BMW have to order the part in so its not like they even offer convenience for people who dont care about price. The parts girl was quite "as a matter of fact" and the price difference in her voice was kind of like, "if you own a bmw and cant afford our parts, your not really a customer we want anyway" thats cool, i will buy a porsche instead when i get some big $$$

    I imported more than 20 sets the last 3 months from Autohaus Arizona.
    Especially the ones for the E32 750 are unbeatable in price. OEM Bosch, not the universal type.
    For the 535 they now have a sale for....
