Time to replace the Elise’ oxygen sensors. Looking for plug and play. Can someone please suggest a source?

Close to plug and play just crimp on connector and save a lot

MWR also sells it with the connector for plug and play, for about 2x the cost.

The European/British part number is: BOSCH LAMBDA SENSOR - 0258006127

This part # is a direct plug and play. You should be able to get it for about $70 shipped from the UK. Remember, you have two O2 sensors (up stream and down stream). I believe the part #s are the same for both. So I would recommend getting 2. Replace both, or just replace the bad one and keep the other one as a spare for when the other goes. Just my 2 cent.

I recently got one from MWR (plug and play version) and it worked great, but cost $120. I kept my old one so I might try to wash it and use it next time!

Eliseparts want about $114 each before tax and shipping. Any other source suggestion?

I got mine on eBay. There’s a lot of them there so I did my homework to see which vender looked the most legit. In a nutshell I looked at their review (ranking, volume, sales date history) “and” wanted to make sure these reviews/sales history showed them selling car parts…not just any car parts but electrical/mechanical parts. There’s always a risk when buying parts on eBay like with NGK iridium plugs which is why I would never get these on eBay.

Oh and my O2 sensors where shipped from the UK…not to bash any countries but there is a correlation with increase/decrease in odds of fraud/fakes depending on where the parts are shipped from.

honestly, you may want to invest an hour and re-use your old plug on a new sensor. I just recently learned how to splice/crimp and it's paid off in dividends. That's definitely what I'd do if I needed another one.

If you already know what you're doing and the old sensor is on your desk, it's probably a 5 min job. Just requires a wire stripper and crimper (+butt connector,+heatshrink), which can be bought for less than the markup for the pre-assembled plug.

I know that's not what you asked for, but it's incredible that the plug is more expensive than the O2 sensor!

MWR even provides the butt-end crimp connectors for the one CatS linked to in the second post. That’s the way I’d go if doing it myself.

if you buy the cheap sensor without the connector, the connector itself is also available at some electronics retailers for less than $10:
