Well done Laura. That was good luck. The CO level was a bit close for comfort though.

That's an understatement - looks like a bit heavier on the gas for high idle and it could have been problem city again.

Was the car very well heated with oil temp at about 90-100 degrees for this test ?

Laura, did you use a genuine Mitsi lambda sensor in the end? €350 is a fair wedge to pay...

It was wasn't it. If it poses problems next year I may replace the air intake sensor. Can't think of anything else except a hole in the exhaust... (I doubt)

It was at 82, what it is at every NCT. Got a nice italian tune up before and went straight in!

I did, from camskill. I know it is, it broke me but the decrease in stress is worth it.
