Time has come for me to sell it having owned it for 5 years... I am asking for £19,995... As most will know this is one of only 73 right hand drive versions of the Z3M Roadster so extremely rare (it is believed that not even all of the 73 were delivered to the UK so could be even less than 73!).

Re: Engine Warning Light

I got the impression from others that there are both pre and post cat lambda sensors. The suggestion is that the post cat lambda is reading too similar to the pre cat one hence reporting that the cat is not working as efficiently as it should.

Will certainly check for leaks pre cat.

Thanks - will consider

Its odd that the inefficient conversion has shown up now as it was MOTed just a couple of weeks previously and therefore passed the emissions test. Guess the tolerance on the lambda sensor is less than the tolerance in the MOT rules!

Re: Engine Warning Light

Turns out no fault on lambda sensors

Fault was something like "inefficient catalytic conversion". Warning light reset and not come back on again.... yet

I though cats should last beyond the 104k my S54 has on it?
