Default o2 sensor...Bosch or AC Delco?

Which one should I get for my 92 sse? AC Delco=$53.00 Bosch=$29.00. Just stating the prices for reference. I thought I heard that certain Bosch products do not work well in our car? I know there have been posts on this but I guess I need a lesson in how to use the search as it seems that everytime I try to use it I get hits that have nothing to do with what I am searching for.

Bosch = Bad news.

For some reason, our cars don't like 'em...

I'm using a Bosch o2. No problems yet. AC Delco is your best choice though

There'* been one or two that have used Bosch just fine, but the vast majority have had bad experiences...
