Some experts (I am not an expert) suggest replacing all 4 O2 sensors with the same brand at the same time. Make sure you don't buy the O2 sensors intended for the older Boxster - different connector.Bosch seem to be the most popular brand.I would give you a link to the correct items on the Pelican Parts site but their link is not working for me.

At $200 plus a sensor, I am trying to see if I can get away with finding the bad sensor only... If that doesn't work I may have to do that.

You can fins the sensors way cheaper if you get the bosch part number. As i recall, all the sensors use the same bosch part on this car

Since this is a very easy DYI , I do them one at a time. No sense replacing something that works and will tell you when its not working.

Guys....thanks for all the valuable help. Per your feedback, I got two bosch oxy sensors for a total of $142 replacing both fron sensors. It was a piece of cake and took $20 minutes. Most of the time was spent getting it on the ramp. :-) You all saved me a bunch of money. Thanks again for your great advice. This is why I love this forum.
