Alfa/EB Spares parts database

Trying to order a new lambda for an S plate TS Spider.

Chassis number is throwing up a non standard lambda as being required.

As far as I can see it is a standard 4 wire CF1 type.

If the car has a standard ECU I cannot understand why it requires a non standard lambda.

Any ideas gratefully received. The car is very sluggish and fuelling could be a problem and so if the wrong lambda is fitted (either a standard one when a different one required or vice versa) then that could help explain the problem.

As a further to above:

As far as ePER is concerned the product code for my car and all Spider/GTV is 46455518.

Saying it was unusual and a one off was incorrect, I guess they just don't sell many for GTV/Spiders.

However no-one seems to stock genuine Bosch, they can be ordered obviously but are quite pricey.

I have been offered ex -stock NGK and Facet. I've never heard of Facet but am assured they are a market leading Italian manufacturer........

Has anyone used either make and has anyone also used the above product code to order one. Would be nice to confirm my car is not requiring something special!

aww thanks for that!..was getting worried...changed deoderant and everything I did....

certainly beginning to wonder just how many CF1 engined GTV/Spiders are using genuine Bosch Lambdas if the hassle I have had getting one is anything to go by...and if they are using other makes whether they are doing what is required of them or causing problems?

EB spares and Shop4parts both desperate for me to go for their OEM parts...have had to pay extra and wait 10 days to get genuine Bosch one...
