Hi Scatz - why I suggested the Lambda sensor was that you said there was some improvement after it was fitted. Could it be duff or the wrong one - some of the after-market ones are known to be bit iffy. Is there only one Lambda sensor on the exhaust. Some car have 2 - one upstream and one downstream but a good emissions testing machine should be able to check it out.
My gut feeling is a fuel mix problem - as coils tend either to cause poor starting or start to break down when they get hot.
It was a like for like swap and the emmissions test was fine after it was in place. Any idea's on what a seperate emmissions test would cost? Not too much I am assuming.
Currently in scatz's garage:
2004 Subaru Legacy GT Spec B, a 2013 2.0 TDCi Titanium X Sport S-Max and a 2001 Honda NSR125R
