I think you might have answered that yourself...
You can't skimp on the expense of the key sensors, I don't think. There are only two or three that you need to get the real thing.
The lambda is one of them I think- you can't expect much from a £20 sensor!
I'm rocking a 1.8 TS 146 myself (plastic top) and I just replaced the lambda this week.
Admittedly not without expense- the part number for me; if it's any use for you was 46750241, and I paid £78 + vat.
You don't want to wish for ECU problems!
Any chance of a picture of your car..?
Thanks for the reply. Let me look for a photo later.
I am still wondering what the "Lambda sensor integrator" reading represent. Is it indicating the short period fuel trim? If so, what is the unit? After reviving the engine for a while, the "integrator" value eventually didn't stay always at zero, but went negative.
