Default Anyone like Bosch oxygen sensors?

Just wondering whether or not anyone ever used a Bosch oxygen sensor without experiencing any technical difficulties in their Bonnevilles?

Our cars DO NOT like Bosch o2 sensors. Several of us, myself included have had premature failures (as little as 30 days) and decreased performance right off the shelf. Use AC Delco ONLY, until someone has better luck with something else.

This guy has a Bosch O2...says it works fine. But I got the ACDelco.

He also has the "Tornado" so you can imagine what his mileage is. He claimed it'* good

Well in my 92 SE EGRless, the Bosch Oxygen Sensor works just fine! It might have to do with the higher temperature though. Also, in case most of you forget, some of the fuel injection components ARE MADE BY BOSCH! It depends on what year of Bonneville you have.
