04+ e46 pre-cat o2 sensors: bosch 17215 and 17216 the same??

hey guys,

just need a clarification from someone who did this.

i have read on a few threads that these parts are the same except for the color of the wire covering.

has anyone bought 2 bosch 17215s and installed them without issue?

help is appreciated as always.

Usually there are different wire lengths on many sensors, so sometimes there are different part numbers with a different pigtail lengths. Of course the longer pigtail will work for both sides, but the shorter pigtail will only fit one location.

You could probably confirm this from the Bosch O2 sensor description. Because there are 2 part numbers, there is something different with the sensors.
