    My UltraGauge told me of a pending trouble code: P0133. (I love my UltraGauge). A quick look-up tells me it's a faulty O2 sensor. Bank 1 Sensor 1. Okay, fine.

    Replacement Denso and Bosch sensors are within ten bucks of each other. Does anyone have anything to say about either of these two brands? My hunch is that they're both probably fine.

    Both seem to be good sensors. I've sold tens of thousands of Bosch sensors in my line of work and we had few problems overall. But I still use Denso sensors on my Toyotas. Something about a non-OEM German part on my Toyota just doesn't feel right...

    Regardless, you can't go wrong either way IMO.

    Denso. Keep with what Toyota uses.
