Question Which Oxygen Sensor should I buy??

Hello to everyone on TCC..I hope the Holiday's have been good to everyone so far, and I want to wish everyone a "Happy New Year" all the best to u and your entire families.

I have a quick question that I was hoping the experts could help me out with..I have a Check Engine Light Code: P0135-02 Oxygen Sensor, Bank 1 - Sensor 1..For my 2000 Honda Civic Sedan SE.

My question is which one should I get..I have been doing some research and I'm totally confused ..The parts guy at the Honda Dealership told me that they order NGK/NTK Oxygen Sensors, but then I've also heard about how good Denso Oxygen Sensors are, and then there is also Bosch..Which one should I go with..Any help, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated..Thanks to everyone for their time and patience..Have a great day everyone.

you simply can not go wrong with NGK. if you have a stock d/d then your best bet would be NGK.

i'm not sure if they're the same company, but i'll normally order NTK sensors. Bosch are crap and Denso parts don't belong on a honda.

NGK/NTK same company and there just an aftermarket replacement. If you dont want to pay OEM Honda price id reccommend NTK O2 sensors. Do not buy BOSCH complete JUNK

Thanks sol_searchin and k_r_a_c_k_e_r for your inputs..Out of curiousity I called up Honda to see what brand they deal with, and they told me that they would order NGK..So I am going to go with the NGK Brand..Also I spoke with a representative from NGK and they told me that NTK is also made by NGK as well..Just a heads up for anybody that wanted to know..Again I really appreciate all the help people..It was greatly appreciated..Have a great day to all.

Unhappy Update: Help Needed !

Well all my excitement got sucked right out of me when I went to the Honda Dealership on Friday to replace my 02 Sensor..Here I was all excited because I saved some money on ordering the part from a website in the United States for $99.27 in total with shipping, handling, duties and all that jazz (NGK Sensor)..Just to be told from the mechanic that there is a hair line crack in the exhaust manifold..Which I've been hearing is a common problem for the 1997-2000 Honda Civics.

My question is can anyone recommend me a good quality aftermarket brand..Honda wants $778 for the part not including taxes..At the same time keep in mind it's my daily driver, so I don't want to go crazy..I don't want to go cheap either , but something that's decent enough, or comparable to OEM..In regards to quality and durability..Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Sorry for the long post everyone.
