Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If this is only one oxygen sensor that needs replaced the cost is way to high for this here.Converted to US dollars is approximately $1008.00 to have replaced or R14000.00.If this is multiple oxygen or Nox sensors needing replaced then the cost can reach this high here but normally for one oxygen sensor to be replaced this can run at the most around R6000.00.

It would be a good idea to get another opinion/hands on diagnosis to make sure of the components needing replaced as well as the cost before paying this much as this seems to high.
