Hello to everybody!

I had to replace theOxygen Sensor (Lambda Sensor) on my 1993 K 1100 RS with the "regulated" catalytic converter. The original BMW's costs like hell - so my buddy, a BMW "guru" from Croatia, advised me to use this one foreseen for cars as a much more affordable substitution:


Bosch Car Oxygen Sensor (Lambda Sensor) replacement for K 1100 Lambda10

Bosch Car Oxygen Sensor (Lambda Sensor) replacement for K 1100 Lambda11

You can also look up Bosch part numbers at this link which confirms that is the correct Bosch part number for the K1100 lambda sensor.

The Oxygen sensors are a bit like the fuel pumps in that almost any sensor will do the job but it's a matter of whether or not the thread and plugs are the same. There are some that are different but most just do a very simple job of measuring the oxygen content in the exhaust gas to determine if full combustion is taking place.
I would not want to use an O2 sensor for a Japanese/computer car as the feedback parameters could be different but Bosch to Bosch system would always be a fairly safe bet especially if the year of manufacture was close.

US members: Euromotorelectrics have a Bosch universal sensor, which costs
a fraction of one from BMW.....made by Bosch.

I posted that link because it's from Bosch and identifies the Bosch part numbers for parts that BMW resells under BMW part numbers at grossly inflated prices.

EME: $ 55,- = ~ 50,-

At the Bosch page the one you have shows up as an alternative to the OEM.

I found a European site that sells the 506 alternative one for 44.81 Eur. They also sell a 0258003251 (the Bosch number printed on a OEM one that I pulled from a factory exhaust) for 75.45 Eur. So it looks like the alternative one is less expensive than the OEM one.

BMW part 11781464492 (a Bosch 0258003251) is priced at $294.72 from US BMW dealers. affraid
