    the virginia state safety inspection

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    So my 2000 a4 just failed the state inspections for a lower front left control arm and an o2 sensor. I was just wondering how easy this work is on these cars to do yourself. It is a 1.8t and ip pretty sure its a downstream sensor becaue it runs fine despite a unique oil pressure issue. The shop quotes me at $550 for the control arms and $250 for the sensor and id like to save $700 if i can. Thanks for the help.

    02 sensor can be had for $28 shipped, and control arm for $28 ...shipped.

    Stuff is easy to do.
    Having a bucket that runs 10's is like saying you have a 200lb girlfriend but she's good in bed.

    Idk where you went but 02 sensors are not part of the safety inspection. Are you in an area with emissions inspections too?
