Default bosch o2 sensors any good?

so i was at advance an di need some 02 sensors but all they got is bosch, i kno bosch spark plugs arent good but i know they make other good products as well, so i bought them on the idea that i can return them if i get a negative response here, so are boschs good or should i go with delco, and if so, would anyone know a website or something tha ti could get delco parts cheap? cause they tend to be pricey

Unless you wanna speed the money for an O2 again in 3 mos or less, just do it right, go to the stealership and buy a OEM delco....Mine hasn't failed me yet

No I have.....

I've had a Bosch in my car before, lasted 2 1/2 - 3 mos tops....Then it was junk. I used it because it was in the trunk of the car when I got it. A band aid if you will..

I purchased a Delco, from the dealer, and I've never had any issues with it for a yr and half.

Have there been alot of people that have had bad experiences with Bosch sensors? I'm just asking because I replaced the o2 sensor in my S10 with a Boach and never had any problems for the 40,000 or so miles I had the truck after I replaced the sensor.
I've also heard people talk great things about Bosch. I'm not saying people here are wrong that they're crap, I'm just wondering how many think so because they've personally had bad experiences with the product and are not just repeating what a few other members might have said.

AC Delco parts CHEAP: Dal Slabaugh at VanDevere Olds. A GM parts legend!

Contact info - [email protected] or (877) 448-5451. Fast shipping, with GM Parts Direct or better pricing, except you don't pay their inflated shipping and handling charges.

Don't believe me? Google "Dal Slabaugh" and see what comes up.

Don't want to go that route? If you use Paypal, try RMS Auto Parts. I've used them several times, and have been nothing but impressed.

Both myself and my friend have been through Bosch Plugs, Bosh O2'* and I have been through Bosch Wires as well.. All I can say personally is that for the 3800'* the above listed items totally suck...

I have also seen the Bosch O2 and Plug failures on other GM cars and trucks as well...
