bosh here (plx m250), pushing over 4.5 years at the end of the downpipe.

lately I've been getting misreadings, but think however that my leaking oil turbo causes all this. It doesnt show richer than 13.0 and leaner than 15.5 anymore :(

I've had my Bosch for about a year with no problems. I'm not familiar with the PLX, does it have to be calibrated periodically?

I've got a cheap ass JAW wideband and i had it go crazy on me with some goofy ass readings, recalibrated it and it worked fine.

there is usually a recalibration schedule(ever 6 months or so) depending on your usage. i deff suggest it. but i drove daily on an LC-1 for about a year. with no issues

i got a Bosch 17014 here (LC-1, LSU 4.2) creeping up on 2 years.

the only reason ill be replacing it is because a cheap o2 sensor bung tore all its threads up. so i ground them down and just screw it in 2 turns and it seems to hold ok. lol :)

LC-1 for neraly 2 years, no issues other then needing to re-calibrate. 4.5 years, Id say you got your money's worth.

Ive had them last anywhere from 3 months to 2+ years. It really depends on the application, location in your exhaust, sensor temps and fuel used.
