Not many of the sensors need an updated plug to be honest,out of all the ones that we have changed only one sensor on a Clio came with a new plug.It's not often a connection issue,more commonly the fact that the sensor has metal fillings stuck to it and this blocks the signal.Only one have I had a connection issue,and that was on a Kangoo diesel van.You could touch the connector and the engine would instantly cut out!.The customer had complained that the van kept cutting out in traffic,and it was the movement of the engine and gearbox as he pulled away that was breaking connection.When I changed the sensor it didn't come with a new connector though,but the van is still OK some 12 months after the fix,and we still the owner quite regularly.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
