Default Differences in Tuner Pro Systems?

I am thinking of getting one of these... Direct from TXS, there's an $80 price difference between the Bosch O2 system, and the VW O2 system. What's the difference between these two systems? Does one react quicker than the other? Is one more accurate/longer lasting than the other? Does everyone just refuse to pay more for something that says VW?

I have the VW model (not the Pro, but the regular Tuner). It works fine. I hear that the Bosch sensor reacts quicker, but doesn't last as long as the VW sensor. The VW sensor is also cheaper. I got a replacement sensor for something like $45 shipped to my door.

I don't have any experience with the Bosch sensor, however, so maybe somebody who has used both can speak up.

Are the harnesses the same for both.. meaning if you originally bought a VW... can you just buy a replacement Bosch sensor and plug and play?

As far as I know NO. The newwer harness might allow you to swap just the O2 sensor wires, but I have not tried.
