Default Oxygen sensor choice: Denso or Bosch

I have been looking around to replace my O2 sensor and came up with either the Denso or the Bosch. However, I have been having trouble figuring out why the Bosch O2 sensor would be at least $20 more than the Denso. Is it more accurate / durable / higher quality or just a marketing ploy? Thanks.

A lot of people have had problems with aftermarket replacement o2 sensors. Go to the dealer and get a Subaru one.

I would recomend the stock 02, although the Denso is apparentalythe stock one. I just whent and got the OEM Subaru one and didnt have to guess at anything.

The correct part from Bosch also contains the OEM sensor manufactured by Denso. $144.09 shipped from Amazon.
