    Lambada on a one off roadster exhaust

    I have what I was advised when I got my roadster is a one off exhaust.
    It's stainless steel with a built in cat.
    The problem is that the engine light comes on and using ODBC to read it is picking up an error on the lambada.
    So I fitted a new sensor. It was fine for 100 miles or so but now the same error showing.
    I want to keep the exhaust as it sounds great. Not too loud but definitely a sportier exhaust note.
    My question is as the SAM is obviously not getting the readings it was expecting from the non standard exhaust should I be using a different than stock sensor. Or have something inline with the sensor like a resistor or some sort of gadget to alter the signal before it gets to the SAM?

    Did you fit a genuine lambda or a pos one ?

    Take your car to RandR exhausts and get them to sort it.

    It was a replacement compatible to original spec one that I grafted on to the original wiring connector.
    I'm looking for the cheapest DIY solution as not got much of a budget.
    I'm in Wigan, Lancashire UK, not sure where RandR are.

    I did try google but don't think this is the right one. http://www.servicentresystems.co.uk/exhaust_index.html
    Quite a few hits come up for RandR Exhausts so without any additional information was too vague a search

    I've always found that a good, used original is better than any aftermarket one.

    Tried two aftermarket ones last year and one lasted 2 weeks while the other lasted 3 - each one failed in a different way.

    Get a decent exhaust in the first place along with the correct lambda and you wont have any problems
