F01 Error P0136 O2 Sensor Fault in Bank 1 Sensor 2

Hi guys

Have had my F02 for 4 years with absolutely no issues, even had a lot of stuff replaced, injectors and ALL with the Customer Care package that BMW offered for free.
Wondering if this error could be "maybe bad fuel" it came ON and off this weekend and after driving 30 miles or so it went OFF and came back ON..
Has anyone had this issue before?
Has anyone replaced the 02 Sensors and whats involved and labor?

How many miles on it? Most O2 sensors easily last 100k.

Probably not bad fuel. These parts to wear out over time. I would think that 77k is on the low side but surely not a huge surprise.

The part itself should be pretty cheap, and you don't need to go to BMW as most of the O2 sensors are built by one of a few companies.

If you need instructions on how to replace it yourself, just give me a buzz.

I need your Year, Make, Model. Engine Size

The good news is the o2 sensors are some of the easier ones I've ever removed. Easily a 5 minute job
